Love God. Love others. Even with my finances.
When it's upside down, money controls people and destroys lives. It's the number one cause of divorce and a top contributor of stress and suicide. However, when it's right side up, money is a tool of a generous life helping people grow closer to God and each other.
- It's a reflection of your heart. Matthew 6:19-20
- It’s a privilege. 2 Corinthians 8-9
- It's faith in action. Acts 4:32-35
