Howard Dayton, formerly of Crown Ministries and now at Compass, says the Bible has over 2,300 verses, and 15% of what Jesus said was about money. Howard is a solid guy, and I trust him when he says he has counted them. Doesn’t this make you pause for a moment?
I take a kind of common sense approach to things… (talking to myself) “Now if God has that much to say about one single subject, it must really be important to Him, and He must really care about our use of it–really want to help us ‘get it,’ and He must really care about us to devote that much to it and us.”
Wow, it is so encouraging knowing God cares that much about us and wants to help us.
