Sovereignty & Money

John Piper said it this way:

“He (Jesus) said more about money than he did about heaven and hell because where your treasure is there will your heart be also. So why do we have money? Money is God’s idea, what’s it for? Here’s the reason we have money: we have money to use it in such a way that we show that money is not our God, but God is our God. That’s why we have money. Money is given to us to use it in such a way to show the world that money is not our treasure but Christ is our treasure. That’s why we have money.”


Like most remarks that are that good, I look at it and think, “Man, I wish I could have said it like that.”

So God gave you money so that you might use it in a way that demonstrates money is not your God but God is your God.

How about it?
