Questions About Finances

2010 | by Parker Landis | Category: Recommended Link,Sermon Follow-Up

In light of Sunday’s message on money, here are some great reflection questions from Randy Alcorn about money and finances.

Has the degree of my giving suggested that I have recognized and embraced the full extent of Your grace in my life? Or does it suggest I need to recognize and respond to Your grace in deeper and more heartfelt ways?

Lord, am I honoring You as owner and CEO/CFO of the assets You’ve entrusted to my care? Or am I treating You as a mere financial consultant, to whom I pay a fee? (2 percent, 10 percent, or …). Have I been acting as if I own the store, and You work for me, rather than recognizing that You own it and I work for You?

Is my life revolving around You? Open my eyes, Father. What am I holding onto that’s robbing me of present joy and future reward? What am I guarding and keeping for myself that’s preventing me from having to depend wholeheartedly on You?

Read the rest here.  If you want to learn more about a biblical perspective on money, make sure to check out Alcorn’s book Money, Possessions, and Eternity. Also, we have a shorter book from Alcorn that you can pick up for free at the Resource Center titled, The Treasure Principle. Be sure to join us for Clarus ’10, where Randy Alcorn will be joining us for the weekend of April 30 – May 2.
