Devotionals & Meditations About Money: Introduction

Our weekly devotionals about money will encourage you to invest time daily to reflect on Jesus and His teachings. These money devotionals will help you stay focussed on your stewardship of God's resources, and stay away from debt. Our money devotionals are not panaceas. However, if you are in debt, they can help you get out of debt God's way and in God's time.

These money devotionals do not always deal with money matters directly, instead they stress lifestyle issues. Remember, money management is lifestyle management.

We present a theme for the month, and a topic for the week to help you draw closer to Jesus. We live in a fast paced society. People seem to think if they slow down they will miss a special opportunity to move ahead. You have heard the saying, "don’t just stand there, do something." These weekly money devotionals ask you daily to stand or sit there and be quiet. Draw near to the Lord, and let Him speak into your life. Your are racing ahead and getting nowhere fast; right? Slow down, get into His word and start your day doing His will, not yours.

Our money devotionals and meditations go directly to biblical stewardship and the heart of a personal relationship with Messiah. We pray they bless you.

Presently, we are reviewing devotionals uploaded previously and will re-upload them as relevant weekly.

May: The Family

Despite persistent, vicious attacks on the traditional family by Governments and others in society, God’s ordained roles for the family and family members apply today. Stand firm; do not let Governments’ ill-conceived anti-traditional family policies deceive you. Always remember popular policies don’t equate with morally acceptable policies. God’s Word is the only authority for moral absolutes. This month, we will review God’s Word to learn about the traditional family under these headings:

May 22-31 - The Family Council: Essential teaching and learning medium

June: Walking The Walk

During an intensive two-year period when I set out to prove Christianity was for weak-minded losers, faith preoccupied me. I realized subconsciously I put faith in many objects and people daily. Still I thought, Why would anyone become a follower of Jesus, accepting ‘blindly,’ assumptions about Him? I learned He died, rose, is alive today. But did I have faith enough to believe?

Later, with open eyes, I found out I did not have faith enough to disbelieve Jesus is Messiah. This month as we look at how we practice our faith, we will review these faith-related topics:

June 1-7: Faith and Hope
June 8-14: Commands and Assurances
June 15-21: Forgiveness and Restoration
June 22-30: Happiness...

July: Money by The Book

Biblical teachings on money startles many folks as they discover Jesus spoke more about money, wealth, and possessions than other items. Many people don't understand why they learn so little from churches and Messianic congregations.

We will explore Bible teachings on money this month to help us build a solid, biblically based money management foundation. We will address these areas:

July 1-7: ABCs - What is Your Worldview?
July 8-14: Saving For Retirement?
July 15-21: Rich Man Poor Man, Who Will Inherit The Kingdom?
July 22-31: Breaking The Vase--Lavish Spending

August: Choices

Life is about choices. Often unconsciously we choose between important matters such as working rather than loafing, eating instead of starving, sleeping rather than staying awake. Nobody tells us which to choose because these responses either are inherent or come by experience. Not so with other choices where ignorance and cowardice often hold us back.

This month we will look at some choices that result from inaction:

August 1-7: Heaven or Hell
August 8-14: Truth or Tolerance
August 15-21: Success or Failure
August 22-31: Christianity or Religion

September: Life Lessons

Life is a journey that’s not smooth, but lesson-filled. Our great challenge is to be open to learn as we go. Sadly, rarely do we learn from our experiences, especially if bad, because we don’t accept them. We need to ask Jesus, our Messiah, to lead us through these bad experiences as He promised, and show us how to grow from them.

Because we don’t use these events He presents to develop us, we repeat mistakes and act daily like each outing is our first. We are busy with our priorities that spotlight urgent matters without everlasting significance, so we side-step God’s messages He chooses specially for us.

This month we look at some journeys with several life-lessons. We will highlight a few and look at how we might apply them daily as we stay alert to Messiah’s teachings. Don’t miss God’s faithfulness that permeates these journeys:

September 1-7: Egypt to Canaan
September 8-14: Jerusalem to Moab
