How you manage your money reveals


1. How you manage your money is a TEST from God.

Genesis 4:3-5 (NIV)

3 In the course of time Cain brought some of the fruits of the soil as an offering to the Lord. 4 And Abel also brought an offering—fat portions from some of the firstborn of his flock. The Lord looked with favor on Abel and his offering, 5 but on Cain and his offering he did not look with favor. So Cain was very angry, and his face was downcast.

The test isn’t about MONEY.

The test is about the condition of your HEART!

Matthew 6:21 (NIV)

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

2. Money tests what is FIRST in your life.

Exodus 13:2 (NIV)

The Lord said to Moses, “Consecrate to me every firstborn male. The first offspring of every womb among the Israelites belongs to me, whether human or animal.”

3. Money tests your FAITH in God.

Matthew 16:25 (NIV)

For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.
