:::day fourteen::: FAST FROM MONEY

friday, october 2
"It's not about what you own, but what owns you. It's not about what you consume, but what's consuming you. It's not about how many people serve you, but how many you serve." Steve Roa, Grove Community Church Volunteer
The money in our wallets and bank accounts is not really ours. It all comes from God and we are merely entrusted with it, not entitled to it. Most Westerners don’t usually have to make excruciating financial decisions, like whether to spend our last dollars on food for our children or on medicine for our dying spouse. We unconsciously act as if money could take care of all of our needs, while many poor people have learned the secret to desperately waiting on God for even their most basic necessities. It’s hard for us to understand that feeling of vulnerability and powerlessness, so choose today not to spend any money and instead taste the kind of freedom that comes from relying ONLY on God.
What if we let God have a say in every single purchase we made?

Read... Ecclesiastes 5:10-20; Matthew 6:19-24; Matthew 19:16-30
