Everyday Discernment: The Importance of Spirit-led Decision Making – Day 6

Ever felt the tug or stress on your life when it comes to your finances? Ever heard that the love of money is the root of all evil? Not having, using, or giving money but the love of money is the root of all evil! So when you are faced with stress or contention when it comes to your finances, what do you do? how do you respond? how do you know the right thing to do? Do you turn to God and seek wisdom and discernment? Well, today’s devotional from Tim Ferrara will speak to “Discernment with Finances“.

Life demands we make critical choices, but how can you do so effectively? Your ability to discern can make all the difference in what your future looks like. As you read, you will discover how to measure what you are taught against the truth of God’s Word, how to develop a life-giving connection with God, and the path to finding clear direction from the Holy Spirit.

Scripture from Today’s Devotional:

‘The earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it. The world and all its people belong to him. ‘

Psalms 24:1

‘ “No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money. ‘

Matthew 6:24

‘Jesus sat down near the collection box in the Temple and watched as the crowds dropped in their money. Many rich people put in large amounts. Then a poor widow came and dropped in two small coins. Jesus called his disciples to him and said, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has given more than all the others who are making contributions. For they gave a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she had to live on.”’

Mark 12:41-44

As I reflect on God’s Word from today’s devotional, I realize that some people may wonder why I do that. Why do I put the scripture for the devotional first? Why do I separate it and put it first? Well, it’s because I believe the Word of God is powerful and alive and is able to speak to us right where we are even before we get to the devotional content and how important it is to get rooted in God’s Word! God’s Word is active and alive and can meet us right where we are at! God’s Word never returns void! God’s Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path and so why not get started there so that the darkness will have to flee?

Let’s be the dads who realize that everything belongs to God! Let’s be the dads who realize that every good and perfect gift we receive comes from God! Let’s be the dads who realize that since everything belongs to God, it is our responsibility to be good stewards of everything we have! Let’s be the dads who realize that since everything belongs to God, it is our responsibility to be good stewards of our wives, our kids, and our relationships with others! Let’s be the dads who choose to serve God as our Lord and Master! Let’s be the dads who choose to love God! Let’s be the dads who choose to devote themselves to God! Let’s be the dads who choose to serve God! Let’s be the dads who realize that how we live our lives is a matter of the heart! Let’s remember how God is looking at our hearts not at what others can see on the outside! Let’s be the dads who remember that from the overflow of our hearts the mouth speaks and so much more of what comes out of us is because of the state of our hearts! Let’s be the dads who decide how generous we will be, not out of compulsion or persuasion, but from the overflow of our hearts! Let’s be the dads who are cheerful when we are being generous, not burdened or weighed down! Let’s be the dads who are hilarious when we choose to give because our hearts are overflowing that much!
