The Modern Day Steward Movement
Understanding money is a challenge for most people. As a Christian, we want to understand money through the lens of the Bible. That should be easy to do. After all, money is referenced or written about more than any other topic in the Bible. Do you think that God knew we would struggle with money?
It even gets more complicated than that. Our relationship with money is a direct reflection of our relationship with God. We either live a Matthew 6:24 life or not. Who will you put first in your life? Money or God? The answer lies with understanding how you take what the Bible says about money and making it work in modern times. Then that further complicates things because money can be an unconscious god in our life. It can provide the illusion of confidence, happiness, security, etc. Money connects to other idols that we might have in our life. Money could be the last great surrender in the Christian Life.
So I want to start a movement. God gave me this idea of the Modern Day Steward. I didn’t know what to do with it until things started to come together. With the reach of TheMaven Media Platform I had the answer. The movement comes in the form of people coming together and saying I want to be a better steward of what God has given me. In order to do that, you have to invest in an education concerning how money works and what the Bible says about money. My part is to bring all of that content together through discussions on the website, following up with your questions or your postings on the site, bringing other resources to you such as experts in student loans and admissions, home buying and real estate, and consistent daily content. All you have to do is follow the site and visit in your free time pieces that teach you how money works. You also have direct access to me and the other writers on the site. It works just like Facebook. You post your questions or comments in any of the rooms or you can instant message myself or the other contributors if you want to remain private with your questions.
I am doing this for two reasons. First, it is time to get our financial lives in order. We have to be intentional. That includes yours truly. I am on this journey for the same reasons I am starting it. Second, we have an almost 20 trillion dollar debt problem in this country. One day it is going to become a problem. Those who survive and thrive will be the ones who have their financial house in order. I want that to be you!
So joint the movement and be a better steward of what God has given you.
Keep the Faith,
