How much money is enough?
How much money is enough? The bible speaks of God providing a land flowing with milk and honey, suggesting something more than subsistence survival; but what is an appropriate standard of living? To uncover some of the emotions we all have tied up with money we played a short game. How did it feel to take money from another, or to ask for money and then agree or refuse?
We spoke about the need to balance the ‘right’ to hold money with the ‘responsibility’ to care for others and of the Christian’s duty to act as a steward or trustee of ‘their’ money. Ephesians admonishes a thief to stop stealing so they will have something to give to those in need, perhaps a surprising reason to not steal and a reminder of the need to care for others with our money.
