Am I A Lover of Money?

In today's episode of "Cash God," we're diving deep into a question that might make us squirm a bit: Are we lovers of money? It's a tough one, right? Luke 6:14 sets the stage by calling out the Pharisees for exactly that. It got me thinking, what does that look like for us? If Jesus had access to our bank accounts, would He find His name on them? Not literally, of course, but in the sense of how freely we use our resources to fulfill His purposes.

Luke 6:15 hits harder, pointing out how we might try to justify our actions and desires before others, but God? He sees right through to our hearts. And what's valued by society often doesn't line up with what's valuable to God. Jesus illustrates this with the story of a rich man and a beggar named Lazarus. Despite the rich man's earthly success, his heart was empty of love, showing us that our financial status isn't the real measure of wealth in God's eyes.

This episode is a heart check for all of us. Having money isn't the issue; it's about whether our hearts are open and our wallets are willing to support God's work and show love to our neighbors. Let's use our blessings to bless others, keeping cash in its rightful place and ensuring our hearts are rich in love.
