Money and Materialism

If you haven’t read the Bible very closely, you might assume that there isn’t much in the Bible about the things we deal with in our lives today, like the topic of money. Does the Bible say anything about credit cards, student loans, or how to make and maintain a budget? Does the Bible say anything about money? The answers are yes, yes, yes, and...yes! In the New Testament, Jesus talks more about money than any other topic. All throughout His teachings, this theme is clear: “you cannot serve God and money.” Money is a tangible indicator of our hearts and priorities. It’s no wonder some people squirm in their seats when money and faith are brought up together. Jesus is firm: how a person spends his or her money shows what is important to them. In this study, you will learn God’s view on money and instructions on how to handle it.
