6 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOUR WALLET
Matthew 6:24 reminds us that money can be a dangerous competitor for our heart, so we must take an honest account of how we give, spend, and save. Craig asked us to wrestle with this question: “If I were accused of being the wicked rich James is talking about, would my bank statement be evidence for the prosecution or the defense?”
Here are some follow-up questions to help us figure that out:
1 // What do I dream about financially, buying more for myself or for more opportunities to be generous?
2 // Do I ask God what he wants me to do with 100% of my income and not only the portion I’ve set aside to give to the church?
3 // Do I primarily use my money to make myself more comfortable or to further God’s mission to the world?
4 // As my income has increased, have I increased my giving year after year and become more generous than I was before?
5 // Do I ask God to increase my income or to increase my generosity?
6 // Does the amount that I’m giving require me to trust and depend on God more?
