Christian Values in Economics: Money and Wisdom

©Millie McNabb

I was thinking about the Indiana Jones movie The Last Crusade. Near the end of the movie Indiana had to make a choice between saving the treasure or saving his life. Wisdom prevailed and he let the treasure go.

A Christian value we want to pass on is understanding both money and wisdom as treasures. God has given us the material world to learn how to be a good steward. The principles we learn then apply to being a good steward of the spiritual gifts we are given. We teach our children to handle money wisely, and also that wisdom is a greater treasure than the money.

“For wisdom is protection {just as} money is protection, But the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the lives of its possessors.” Ecclesiastes 7:12

What money lessons prepared you for handling spiritual things?

God bless….
