We have an outrageously generous God! Without a doubt, all of us should be able to say that God has blessed us in more ways than we could ever deserve. God allowed His Son to die on a cross to set us free from the bondage of sin and God does not want us to be enslaved again by anything including our finances. When we get a grip on money and the things money can buy, then we will learn to enjoy the abundant life that Jesus promised.

Talking about money and the things that money can buy is not a popular topic. Nobody wants to
talk about finances...but Jesus did. More than a third of His parables dealt with our possessions. There are more than 2300 verses in the Bible that talk about money. Jesus wants us to enjoy the abundant life, but He has taught us that it only comes when we store up for ourselves treasures in heaven.

Solomon lived the life that many us dream of living. He tried it all as everything imaginable was within
his grasp. However, none of those things brought the kind of fulfillment and satisfaction that he was

woke each morning empty. Today, we need to realize that money and stuff do not fill the void in our lives...
a void that only God can fill. Be careful that you don't fall prey to the myth of more.

When Abraham was asked to do the unthinkable, to take the life of his own son Isaac, it was a test to see his level of trust in God. Abraham needed to show that he loved God more than the gift that God had provided. We also need to search within ourselves and ask, "Do we love the things that God has given us more than we love God who has provided so generously for us?" Here is the bottom line: How much we trust in God to provide is reflected in the way that we give back to God. Do you trust God to provide?
