Is God first

As Christian we know that God is asking us to put Him first in everything. In fact, we usually quote Jesus when He says “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you”. – Matthew 6:33 We know that we should put God first and often pretend that we do it, but, do we really? Especially when it comes to money. I once heard a pastor make a very harsh but…

Have you saved for a rainy day? I mean do you have enough money to set aside to make your living expenses in the event that you lost your job? In 2013, ING bank did a survey with frightening results. They discovered that the average Australian would run out of money in just six weeks, I believe that in the united states it's as short as 4 weeks. It’s a very serious problem! Even though their unemployment rate has come down,…

In today’s society, many of us feel a burden to either be rich, or at least look rich. If you feel pressured to buy a house you can’t really afford, or buy that car that makes you look successful, Jesus offers a great and tough advice. “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed, life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” – Luke 12:15 (NIV) Many of us has fallen into the lie that possession are what…

In this day of age we’re bombarded by choice, and never before have we had so many choices about what we can spent our money on. I think Jesus words can provide us with a very healthy perspective. He once said, “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in the field. When a man found it, he hid it again and then in his joy went and sold all that he had and bought that field.” - Matthew 13:44…

Someone ask me the other day, do you know the difference between animals and mankind? Financial worries. When I take my kids to the zoo, we don’t get a sense of the animals worrying about whether the zoo can pay the electricity bill or not. So it begs the question, why do we worry about money? While many people do have genuine financial problems (due to excessive debt or unemployment and so forth), for most of us worrying about money comes…

In today’s society, debt is perceived as normal, harmless, and necessary… but is this really the case? I want to suggest to you that debt can be dangerous, and as Christians we should give very serious consideration how much debt we have. I want to highlight the key areas where debt can be dangerous. Debt for consumption - with depreciating assets, the problem of course is when the asset is worthless than the debt. Debt that stops you from giving…

The bible give us a bit of a clue to what we should do; “Start children off on the way they should go and even when they are old they will not turn from it.” - Proverbs 22:6 I want to give you a strategy to help your kids learn about money. One great way is by teaching them how they can spend their pocket money, or any other money they own, from a casual job. The first thing to…

I want to talk to you about what is the most sensitive subject, and that is how we spent our money. I’ve read somewhere recently a great quote: “Our bank statements are like theological documents.” What the author really meant is that how we use our money not only tell us what we value, it tells us what we truly believe. In fact, it’s not really correct to say that the money is ours. The money that we have is…
