The chips are down. The truth is out. All we really care about is the economy, not the people.
Listen to the news. Money, money; keep the economy going. Watch out for the stock market!
Folks they are all wrong in their yelling!
“Noise proves nothing. Often a hen who has merely laid an egg cackles as if she had laid an asteroid.” (Mark Twain)
Our evaluation of things is skewed. We’ve taught ourselves that more money equals better product. Not so.
Maybe that is why some still deny the Christ. He doesn’t charge an arm and a leg.
In fact Jesus gave his life freely for no other reason than that he loves us. He freely offers us forgiveness of sin and eternal life. Then he gives us the Holy Spirit to live in us.
And we say—“doesn’t cost enough…must not be worth much.” That is a lie.
Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”(John 8:32, NIV)
Prayer- Lord, forgive us for undervaluing your free gift to us, the most priceless gift ever offered to us. Amen.
Are you getting them too? Those scam guys and gals who want to swindle you out of your money? They are using our hearts to get at our wallets.
They tell great sob stories, get rich quick schemes and use what ever else they can dream up. I joined www.scambusters.org, a free ‘stop scams’ type of newsletter so that I won’t fall for the sad moans of the dishonest.
Apparently North Americans are the most susceptible.
Why is that? We have more than most so why do we chase after more?
Did you know that 53 out of every 100 people live on less than 2.00 a day? We are millionaires to the rest of the world and we still don’t think we have enough?
Wouldn’t it be wonderful if we truly wanted more so that we could give more? Unfortunately that is not the truth of the matter.
“Oh my friends, enjoy your money. Make the most of it. Give none away. Enjoy it quickly for I can tell you, you will be beggars throughout eternity. Robert Murray M’Cheyne.
When I fed them, they were satisfied; when they were satisfied, they became proud; then they forgot Me (Hosea 13:6)

Your Money God’s Way by Amie Streater
Our reviews are generally about 200 words. So far that’s been enough for me.I’ve never before appreciated a book so much that I wanted to write two reviews for it, just so I could use more words! This book is it.The solution? Buy the book- ASAP.This is tough love money talk from a pastor who cares about how God’s people handle money.
It is truth we all need to hear and it is not like any other money book you have read.
She tells us truth like this.
If you are just plain stupid with your money, it is not God’s fault.
If you aren’t grateful for what you have,you won’t be grateful for more.
How we use money is a barometer of our spiritual condition.
The problem is never money and the answer is always God.
Saying no to a controlling, manipulative person does not yield pleasant results. They will accuse you of lacking compassion, not caring and even question your salvation..all in the name of getting you to cough up assistance one more time. Buy the book. It will change your life..
I do wish it had a study guide to go along with it so easier taught.
