When it comes to money, it seems like there are strong voices in our culture that are telling us to do one of three things…
- Make as much as possible in order to acquire more and better things (greed).
- Save as much as possible so that you won’t ever be without (fear).
- Give away as much as possible, because the accumulation of money is bad or evil (martyr).
Rather than focusing on one aspect of financial resources, John Wesley (the founder of the United Methodist movement) challenges us to do all three - “gain all you can, save all you can, and give all you can.” As we begin a new series called “Makes Cents", our focus will be on an interconnected approach to faith and finances that’s based on a deep trust in God and results in beautiful generosity.
