  • Last week we said, wisdom we said is seeing life and decisions from God’s perspective.
  • The fool see only what is right in front of him and is led by his or her emotions. The person with wisdom zooms out and sees how his or her decisions will effect many people over a much longer period of time. 


Well if there were ever an area we could all use more wisdom, God’s perspective it’s in the area of WEALTH


  • ACCORDING TO The Urban Institute Study - An estimated 1 in 3 adults with a credit history -- or 77 million people -- are so far behind on some of their debt payments that their account has been put "in collections.”
  • Financial Arguments are the #1 cause of Divorce in America. 


It’s a big deal to God. AND it’s a unique thing. See, at times the Bible seems incredibly POSITIVE about money and at time incredibly NEGATIVE about money. 


  • IT’S GOOD - There are times when it seems to say Money is very, very good.

Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD, it makes one rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.


  • IT’S BAD - Jesus said it’s easier for a camel to get through an eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven. Wait a minute... I thought the Blessing of the Lord makes one rich...but then when we get rich we go to Hell? 

ILLUSTRATION: The most popular books in the christian book stores tend to err one way or the other. 


  • The Poverty Gospel - If you love Jesus, you will sell everything, ride a bicycle to work and adopt 10 kids. 
  • The Prosperity Gospel - Jesus would drive a Bentley. So you wanna drive a Cadillac you gotta have Cadillac faith.... yes.... a-men-a!
