God's Will Is Not More Stuff

Martin Luther once said, “I have held many things in my hands and I have lost them all.  But whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess. This statement from Martin Luther is pretty insightful, but of course he was just restating what the Bible already tells us about ownership, stewardship and stuff. Today on MoneyWise, our host Rob West breaks down how we should view earthly possessions according to what the Bible has to say.

•          Luke 12 says that we shouldn’t worry about what we will eat, or drink, or wear, because the Father already knows of those needs and He will provide. Jesus says, “ … seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you. Do not be afraid … for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom.” 

•          1 John 2: “Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.”

•          Martin Luther was merely restating a profound biblical principle and declaring that when he applied it to his life, during which he was excommunicated and declared an outlaw by the church in Rome, it proved true.


In today’s show we also answer your questions:


•           How do you determine how aggressive you need to be with your investing for retirement?

•           I have an opportunity to sell my home. What should I do with the money if I’d like to invest it for my future?

•           How do you know when it is time to sell your home in order to make it easier financially in other areas of your life?

•           My wife has a coworker that is in a tough spot financially. What is the best way for us to help her?
