5 Signs of a Master of Money
Money. We cannot get away from it. We can try to hide from it, but the reality of it is, it always catches up to us. It is a foundational part of society. God in his sovereignty uses money to shape His people. It is not evil. In 1 Timothy, Paul teaches that “the love of money is the root of all evil”, not money itself. Money is a tool in the hands of one who wields it and it will always return to its rightful owner. Money is looking for a Master. How can you be sure if you are a Master of Money? Here are 5 characteristics of a Master of Money:
A Master of Money is filled with hope. She is not driven by fear or lack. She is confident that abundant life is her portion. She understands that God’s economy is not driven by scarcity but by infinite good and as a son or daughter, she gets to partake in it.
A Master of Money is empowered to create the vision that God gives him. He is not passive, but is equipped with skills, tools, and confidence to take a hold of opportunity and partner with God to see his purpose and dreams happen.
A Master of Money is marked by peace. She is not driven by fear, stress or anxiety. She does not let circumstances dictate her peace or lack of peace. She is confident that God works all things for good.
A Master of Money has gained wisdom. He knows how to discern wise and foolish choices. He is not driven by fads or get-rich-quick schemes, but knows how to partner with God, plan well and recognize opportunities as they come.
A Master of Money does not settle for freedom. She learns to walk in liberty and steward the freedom she has. Freedom without learning liberty will always lead you back to bondage. Freedom with liberty in lockstep will lead to a life of accomplishment and adventure with God.
Does This Describe You?
Does this list describe how you handle money? Were you surprised by this list? Were you expecting to see something like this: Saver, Debt-Free, Investment-Savvy, Balances Asset Allocation Well, etc.?
Too often we approach the subject of money from a skills based perspective instead of realizing the belief system that drives it. If you do not develop correct beliefs, you will always circle back to where you start. 3 John 1:2 says, “Beloved, I pray that you would prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers.” This means that as your soul (your heart, mind, and will) prospers, you will prosper.
