Find Freedom Beyond Worldly Wealth
Prosperity gospel teachers exclaim, "Jesus and the apostles were rich, and therefore believers should expect the same financial success." Their critics say this "greed-based theology" is simplistic, misguided, and even dangerous. Christians desiring to achieve the American Dream wonder, should I want to be a millionaire?
"That's the question I wanted answered when I found myself pinned to the kitchen floor in tears after resigning from my once-coveted position as division CFO for AT&T Broadband. I had climbed the corporate ladder, had pursued and achieved career greatness, and was on my way to realizing my dream of being a wealthy Christian businesswoman. Then God dramatically directed me to change my priorities. But I wasn't going to give up my career success that easily. Over the next ten months, I experienced the pain and emptiness that come from telling God no. That's when I began to learn that prosperity means more than working hard to make lots of money. It means investing our lives in what God wants more than in what we want."
It's true: God gives you the power to create wealth. Financial prosperity will lead to the trap of worldly wealth, however, unless you love God more than you love your success. In this book you will discover why:
1. Without God's direction, wealth-producing ambition can lead to financial and spiritual captivity.
2. Generosity and commitment to God-inspired purpose unlock the door to financial prosperity.
3. Higher motives, higher standards, and higher uses for money make it possible for a rich person to live in God's kingdom.
4. Wealth is meant to fund God's economy.
When we maintain an eternal perspective on money and build our financial house to be prepared for that Day of accountability, we become a conduit through which money flows in the kingdom of God. Tapping into God's purpose for our prosperity allows us to begin the journey of making money that will benefit us and God's kingdom, and the benefits will last...forever.
