What should we do with our money? If you had a sudden windfall today what would you do with it? And perhaps more to the point, what SHOULD you do with it? Sometimes we spend money without even realising it – but we are called to manage our money well. So what does one of Jesus most famous parables about money teach us about how we should approach our finances – and what does this have to do with seeing more of God’s influence and authority here on earth?
Someone once said ‘You can tell a lot about priorities from their chequebooks’. What does your cheque book (or bank statement) reveal about your priorities? If God is first in our lives then our first priority should be to give back to God. So what is this second principal of financial freedom around firstfruits and tithing? Is it really still applicable today and if so, where do we start?
