Do you invest in God’s Kingdom like you invest in yours? Really the ideal mindset is a one kingdom mindset, where you understand everything comes from God and is God’s. But this little test might help us see if we have that singular mindset or if we really do have two kingdom’s – ours and God’s.
Many pastors and Christians have a good understanding of finances, savings, and planning for retirement. Rightfully so, we are getting and giving a lot of good financial advice, and many of us have growing 401k or 403b accounts. And here’s the typical approach we take with these accounts:
1. Our investment is consistent – we invest every time we get paid.
2. Our investment is first – it normally comes directly and immediately out of the check.
3. It is measured – we have chosen a percentage in advance that is based on a strategy.
