The subject of money can be a touchy one. I have seen numerous debates on whether to tithe or not, whether money is evil or not, etc. In all honesty, most of these debates are distractions from the real issue. Who’s money is it?
As followers of Jesus, we want to have the same attitudes in our lives as He had. The one thing that we can all agree on is that Jesus was generous. Because of that and because we all know that He said that “where our treasure lies, there will our heart be also,” I felt it would be good to share a few Christian quotes about money and finances.
Bible quote on giving our gifts.
1 Peter 4:10As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God.
5 Mind Blowing Christian Quotes About Money And Finances
Many Christians and Christian leaders have been neutralized by the love of money and materialism. The homage paid to affluence becomes a burden that saps our energy as well as our love for God and other people. Though repentance and the cleansing of forgiveness, we can rid ourselves of this burden and begin to let God transform our value system. Like Jesus and Paul, we can learn to be content with what we have, living modestly in order that we may give liberally to the work of the kingdom and to meet the needs of others. – John Wimber
If… a doubt should at any time arise in your mind concerning what you are going to expend, either on yourself or any part of your family, you have an easy way to remove it. Calmly and seriously inquire,1. In expending this, am I acting according to my character? Am I acting herein, not as a proprietor, but as a steward of my Lord’s goods?2. Am I doing this in obedience to his Word? In what Scripture does he require me so to do?3. Can I offer up this action, this expense, as a sacrifice to God through Jesus Christ?…You will seldom need anything more to remove any doubt which arises on this head; but by this consideration you will receive clear light as to the way wherein you should go. – John Wesley
You say, ‘If I had a little more, I should be very satisfied.’ You make a mistake. If you are not content with what you have, you would not be satisfied if it were doubled. – Charles Haddon Spurgeon
My take on tithing in America is that it’s a middle-class way of robbing God. Tithing to the church and spending the rest on your family is not a Christian goal. It’s a diversion. The real issue is: How shall we use God’s trust fund—namely, all we have—for His glory? In a world with so much misery, what lifestyle should we call our people to live? What example are we setting? — John Piper
The world asks, “What does a man own?” Christ asks, “How does he use it?” – Andrew Murray
