Hebrews 13:5 (NIV)
Did you see that? God’s promise to never leave you is connected to your financial future. He’s saying there’s no need for you to love money. You can be content with what you have. You don’t need to hoard your resources—because you have the assurance of God’s presence. God always sees you and always knows what you need. And because God is love, he will never forsake you, including when you are in need.
What are you trusting for your future financial security? Are you trusting in your possessions or in God’s presence?
If you have a hard time letting go of money, tithing, or being generous, then you are revealing a lack of faith. You don’t really believe God will keep his many promises to take care of you. You’re living with a scarcity mentality.
Try instead to start living with God’s promises in mind. Once you do that, you will not have to hoard because you will trust God. You will hold your resources with an open hand. This is the only way to live a purposeful life!
