Windows on Finance Part 8
We’ve covered quite a bit of ground so far and I thought it would be a good idea just to pause and review where we’ve been. So let’s take another look at the foundations we’ve been laying.
We started out by asking who our Source was. By that I mean who do we look to for our provision? The example I used was, say someone is asking for an offering for a building project, do we look in our wallet or chequebook and make decisions based on what’s there or do we ask God how much we should give? This is a tough question but it does reveal where we’re expecting our provision to come from. Whilst there is nothing innately wrong with money, when we look to it for our provision instead of relying on God we have made mammon (the spiritual power behind money) higher than God.
