Money and the Christian

God wants to free us from money's bondage and help us put it in its proper place.
6 Session Bible Study

Money can put us in bondage. God wants to free us from this bondage and help us put money in its proper place by considering it his rather than ours. This six-session course will challenge the way you see money.

Session One

Money Belongs to God
Only by recognizing where money comes from can we be free of its power.
Psalm 24:1; Mark 4:14–21; 10:17–31; 1 Corinthians 4:7

God wants to help us get rid of the word mine when it comes to money. We need to think of our money not as ours, but rather as what it truly is: his.

Session Two

Money Traps Us into Wanting More
Instead of satisfying, money makes us hungrier.
Mark 10:17–22; Colossians 1:9–13; Hebrews 13:5

The strange thing about accumulating money is that it makes us want more. Only God can reorient this natural tendency.

Session Three

Money Lulls Us into Thinking We Have Power
Money isn't just money; it is power, but its power can go either way.
Proverbs 30:8; Luke 16:1–15; 1 Timothy 6:17–19; Ecclesiastes 5:10–15

Money has the power to hurt and corrupt, or the power to heal and help. It also has the power to consume.

Session Four

Money Fails to Buy Happiness
True pleasure comes from contentment rather than from wanting more.
Matthew 6:25–34; Philippians 4:10–13; 1 Timothy 6:6–10

Even if we don't admit it to ourselves, we think that money can bring us happiness. We want to make more money so we can buy more stuff and go more places. But money rarely brings us long-lasting pleasure.

Session Five

Money Convinces Us It Will Bring Us Prestige
Real prestige can only come from God.
Luke 12:16–21; 21:1–4; James 2:1–5

For many of us, how much we make, how much we have saved, or the kinds of things we own are indicators of what we're worth. However, God infuses us with real prestige when we invest our money compassionately.

Session Six

Money Is to Be Used for God
Open your mind to the possibilities of using your money for God's glory.
Isaiah 55:1–9; Acts 4:32–35; 1 Timothy 6:10–12

Money brings all sorts of impossibilities to our minds. But when we look in our wallets, God wants us to see possibilities: for making a difference, for contentment, and for freedom that we've never known before.
