Happy Wednesday – we are halfway through the work week and I pray that it has been very productive for you. We are continuing our conversation on “The Matters of Money” today. Yesterday we talked about how money is a mirror of the heart, and it will magnify the condition of your heart. Today let’s stay along those same lines, but from a practical perspective.
If you grab your check register, monthly statements, or look at your online account you can get a pretty decent scope of who you are and where you like to spend your money. The question is, what are your financials saying about you?
If there were one image, one image only, that surmised all of your financial transactions for the month of January until now, what would that image be? Could it be one of these?
Isn’t that interesting? As I said, your money is a mirror; it becomes whatever the person beholding it is? Which picture are you? Could you wear your financial image on the back of your shirt today and not be ashamed? If the answer is no, then you have some changing to do!
I’ve seen great men and women compromise their morality and spirituality due to money. I don’t want you to fall victim to this as you progress in life and in your money. The time is now, to ask God to clean your heart of the impurities that will make idolatry easy. Pray like David, “Create in me a clean heart oh God, and renew in me the right spirit!”
