Session 11

Know Where Your Money Goes

Read: 1 Corinthians 4:1-5

Paul, an apostle and church planter, was considered one of the great leaders of his time. But as Paul addressed a new church in the city of Corinth, he told the members to look at him as a servant not a leader. Why did Paul want the church to know he was a servant?

When we realize we are servants, we willingly give God control of every area of our lives—even our finances. Just like we want a financial planner to manage our money well, God wants us to manage His money well. Being a good money manager means being cautious and aware of spending habits.

A budget is a tool to help us manage our money. Budgets show us how much money is coming in and where it’s going. Budgets hold us accountable so we save for the things we need instead of only buying the things we want. Many people hear the word “budget” and cringe. But “budget” is not a bad word. Budgets are essential for great money management.

 

Think About:

1. Do you know where your money goes each month? What’s your biggest challenge when it comes to keeping up with your spending?

2. Do you have a budget? Why or why not? 

3. What step can you take this week to be a better money manager?

 

Pray:

Jesus, You have entrusted me with so much. Help me to manage Your money well.
