In these days of economic uncertainty, and in a society that values financial security, money is an emotional topic. Appearances and lifestyle matter to us. And money or the lack of it often determines whether or not were content. The truth is, our attitudes toward money and possessions reflect the quality of our relationship with God. And, according to the Scriptures, our view of money reveals where our true affections lie.
Prosperity is not a sin, but it does bring responsibilities. And scarcity is not a virtue, particularly when it distracts us from the things that truly matter.
In this six-week study you will discover God's view of material wealth. As you dig into the Scriptures, you ll learn where money comes from, you ll see how we re supposed to handle it, and you ll understand how to live an abundant life, regardless of your financial circumstances.
