Jesus and Money

Don’t even remember how I came across this book Jesus and Money.  I was drawn by the title as I’m in the process of figuring out the studio finances for the new year.  It’s a problem I’ve been lavishly avoiding for a long time, but I really need to figure out a way to sustain the studio work financially so that I don’t end up becoming a starving artist.

The book did remind me some of the many important bible teachings regarding wealth. Some of the teachings include being good stewards (we don’t own anything in this world), money is not evil (problem is with the love of money), “seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and all the others will be given unto you” (the others being necessities like food and clothing and not luxurious items),…

Oh Lord, may You continue to guide me in my career, let me use the gifts You have given me to serve others, as faithful steward of Your grace in various forms. For we are your workmanship, created in Your image to do good works, which You prepared in advance for us to do.
