Day 4 – Respect of money

Filed under: Finances — pearsey @ 6:18 am

This is a summary, from chapter 4, 31 Reasons people do not receive their financial harvest, written by Mike Murdock.
Day 4 – Many do not really respect money and do not recognize it as a weapon and tool for good.
“What you respect will come toward you. What you don’t respect moves away.” If you begin to respect money, it will come towards you. Often in Christian circles, those who talk about money are ridiculed by the church and often talking about money will stir up a reaction in people. Mike Murdock argues that this shows a lack of true respect for money – and I think even a lack of respect towards God word and His minister. If people are willing to spend 40 or more hours per week slaving away for the money they earn, shouldn’t they treat it with some respect and learn about the best ways to manage it and what God says about it?
Different ministers of God have different callings. Some are anointed in the area of healing, others in the area of faith, and others in the area of finances. Listen to financial mentors and let them help and teach you to multiply what you have been given.
Ecc 10:19 says “money is the answer for everything”. Some may argue that money won’t bring you happiness – but neither will poverty. Money will allow you to get an education, put food on your table, meet your needs and give to the Kingdom of God. Money is a tool for good. When you have had to work hard for your money, you will have a healthy respect for it, financial investors and ultimately, what the word of God says about finances.
I was fortunate enough to have great teaching on finances by a previous pastor of mine. He had learnt what God had to say about finances and helped reinforce in me a healthy respect for money and to understand more what the bible says about it. Good teachers like this are worth their weight in gold!
“When you truly recognise how important the gift on money is, your harvest will come towards you in miraculous ways”.
