But before you decide to take on more hours at work, or look for ways to earn more money, take some time to meditate on these 4 Scriptures. They might lead you in a whole new direction, or change your perspective altogether.
When you feel the “tug” of wanting to earn more money, let giving be at the heart of it. For we know that the Lord loves a cheerful giver and that He blesses those who bless others. So why not let generosity motivate us?
In all of our striving, let’s keep in mind who supplies everything we need. It can be quite tempting to work harder so that we can be successful on our own. But to be fully dependent on God is KEY to putting our finances into perspective. His riches are limitless!
This verse contains a beautiful promise for us…the promise of abundant blessing. We are even encouraged to “test” the Lord in this, by faithfully giving our first fruits to Him, then waiting in eager anticipation for His overflow of blessing. Isn’t that amazing?
Part of being a cheerful giver is being a good steward of our money. When we are always behind, or trying to make ends meet, we may think that tithing is the first thing to cut from the budget. But God promises to “throw open the floodgates” when we are faithful to tithe. Let’s handle our money wisely so that we will not struggle to walk in obedience to His principles.
Just as giving is a good reason to want to earn more money, serving is equally as honorable. When we commit to using our God-given gifts to serve Him and others, we don’t have to worry about the amount of money we make. We might work harder to earn more, but our hearts will be focused on “doing unto others as we would have them do unto us.”
In reality, we all desire to earn more money. After all, we work hard for every dollar we make. So, let’s work just as hard to keep our finances in the proper perspective—God’s perspective. After all, He is our Source, our Guide, and the Ultimate Provider.
