“A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children….” (Proverbs 13:22a NKJV)
Off and on for the past few years, I’ve returned to this subject in my personal study. Whether ministering from the pulpit or working with entrepreneurs and businesspeople in the context of business, the idea that we — as Christians — struggle more than most with money has come up again and again.
Looking at my own church experience, I can see that there are a number of factors that have affected me personally. It has been a journey in and of itself to reconcile my own thinking with what I’ve come to understand from the Word of God.
But… reaching beyond myself, I’ve discovered that many people struggle with many of the same issues. And there are others that I’ve found are working to limit the effectiveness of God’s people that had not been a part of my own experience.
The most dangerous ones, of course, are the ones that affect us without us being aware of them. For example, confusing wealth with money is a common misunderstanding. What exactly is it that we are pursuing in business anyway?
All of this has led me to work on something that I’m excited to be announcing very soon. It is intended to address all of this — and much more — head-on.
