Windows on Finance Part 9
How we relate to money is an indication of our understanding of God’s grace. God’s basic principles around money call for giving and receiving. These embody Grace, e.g. when you give something without expectation of return you are manifesting grace (unmerited favour). The world’s financial system of buying and selling demands exchange (value for value). So when we take something designed by man for buying and selling (i.e. money) and freely give it with no expectation of return, we have introduced money to grace and we have profaned the sacred properties ascribed to money by mammon and have declared to the spiritual and natural realm that mammon is not our source.
