The love of money is the root of all evil, not money itself. Unfortunately, money is a necessity. We need money to pay our bills, to make a living, to buy clothes, to put food on the table, and all that good stuff. I know many of us vision ourselves being mult-millionaires or billionaires one day. However, in order for God to trust us with a million dollars, we must show God that we know how to manage a hundred dollar here and there or even $1,000 for that matter. My point is that if you cannot budget a $400 paycheck every week, what makes you think that God will entrust you with more money. If you are faithful over a few things, He (God) will make you ruler over many things. Read about "The Parable of the Talents" in the bible, Matthew 25:14-30.
God wants us to be good stewards over our finances. In order to get where you want and need to be with your finances, you must become disciplined. You must allow God to give you instructions on how to increase your finances and/or how to become debt free. It is not God's will for us to be walking in lack, wanting for anything, or to be broke all the time. We are His children. We are Designer's Originals. We are queens not paupers! We are lenders and not borrowers. "...You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow." (Deuteronomy 28:12) On this page, you will find money saving tips, financial tools, and so much more. God is doing a new thing in our finances and it shall spring forth! In Jesus' name!
