There’s no way around the fact that money matters. It is not a sign of not being spiritual to think about it, worry about it, or talk about it a lot. Your thoughts about money will greatly impact your life, and you can’t avoid the fact that your heart will struggle with money in some way. Money is essential, but it’s even more critical in a world that seems crazy with money. Money is so important that it was one of Christ’s favourite and most important things to talk about when he taught. Jesus didn’t avoid talking about money. Instead, he spoke about it all the time. Jesus talked more about money than heaven. You might not know that. More often than he spoke of hell, he talked about money. In the Gospels, there are 39 stories called parables. Eleven of them are about money. This series explores what the Scriptures say about money and the dangers and blessings that come with money.
