No one likes to talk about money.
At least not on a personal level.
We talk about investments and the economy and “out there” stuff, but most like to keep talk of their personal paychecks private.
Today I wrote a post about finances for another blog that’s soon to launch (where I’ve been asked to be a regular contributor – more about that soon). And, although I usually think the topic of finance is a little boring…
I was totally into it.
I mean, like really, really diggin it.
Because when you know God, and are connected to him, it becomes not just about numbers in a bank account or dollars in your pocket, it becomes about understanding him and his ways. (And, oh how I love knowing him and his ways!)
There’s a verse in Luke that talks about how he provides for the ravens and how much “more valuable” we are than them.
And that’s it! That’s the key!
God provides for us because we’re worth it. We’re worth it.
Did you catch that? Cuz it goes for you too.
He also provides for us because that’s who he is – our Provider. Capital P. That’s what he does. He can’t not be himself.
Money can be a difficult thing – when it rules us, when it seems we are in lack, when it’s squandered, when we idolize it, etc. But it can also be a really beautiful thing.
Jesus never shied away from talking about money.
So why do we?
We need it. We want it. We can even use it as a tool to worship him and bless others.
I’m so glad he thinks I’m worth it.
Q for you: Do you struggle with talking about money? Did you know that God thinks you’re worth it?
