Faithful Stewards of Money
Jesus said, “Make friends for yourselves by means of unrighteous wealth, so that when it fails they may receive you into the eternal dwellings” (Luke 16:9). The Bible is very clear that our salvation is a free gift, so what is Jesus saying? He is saying that the greatest purpose for God’s money is to help people to get into heaven. Use money to build eternal relationships. Can you imagine someone coming up to you in heaven to express his thanks for being in heaven because of your giving? Because you gave to that church, you helped get him there. This is what we can refer to as an eternal IRA.
Prayer: Dear Heavenly Father, help me be a faithful steward of the money that You have entrusted to me by using it to extend Your kingdom. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
Blessings on your journey as a steward!
