Life is too short and too important to live with the constant stress, anxiety, and worry that come from not honoring God with your finances. We will spend a lot more time in eternity than we will in this life.
Consider Jesus’s words in Matthew 6:19-21:
“Don’t store up treasures here on earth, where moths eat them and rust destroys them, and where thieves break in and steal. Store your treasures in heaven, where moths and rust cannot destroy, and thieves do not break in and steal. Wherever your treasure is, there the desires of your heart will also be.”
I encourage you to memorize these verses and decide to live by them.
And at the end of your life, your relationship with money will be summed up by one of two words, either generosity or greed. You have the opportunity, and now the tool, to embrace a life of generosity–a life free from stress and anxiety, a life in which your needs are met, and, ultimately, a life that honors God.

“I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ.” – Philemon 1:6
