At the time I was working on my blog for the month of April, I didn’t even know it was financial literacy month. In fact, it wasn’t until my friend @changeyourfinances spoke to my Rooted membership community about Biblical business finances in March that I learned financial literacy month even existed!
On the April 5 podcast episode, @changeyourfinances and I had a powerful conversation about Biblical business finances, and where we get stuck on the subject of money. Many of us grew up in families where the subject was off the table, or it had a lot of strong emotions attached to it, and that trickles down into our businesses.
But what if it could be different?
What if money didn’t have to be some mysterious taboo topic?
What if we truly remembered (or better yet, accepted) that:
💰God is the one that gives us the power to earn/create wealth (Deuteronomy 8:17-18)
💰Every good gift is from Him (James 1:17)
💰He provides all we need (Philippians 4:19)
I could go on and on with verses straight out of scripture about money, and how we warp them to say what we want. This isn’t a “prosperity” or a “money is evil,” message. It’s a reminder that none of it is about us. It’s about us being a good steward of HIS resources – to impact the Kingdom, leave a legacy, and bless others. Because in the end, that’s exactly what His purpose for us – and our businesses – really is.
