We need to demolish lies about money for these reasons:

Lies about money lead you to fear, fret and hoard.

“Money is not and never will be a problem for me. My God is an abundant provider who meets every need. Because I am blessed, I will always be a blessing. I will lead the way with irrational generosity, because I know it’s truly more blessed to give than to receive.” Craig Groeschel

Lies about money lead to discontentment.

6 signs of discontentment:

  • You compare.
  • You acquire things to make you happy.
  • You’re restless.
  • You’re jealous.
  • You’re a workaholic.
  • You lack margin in your schedule.

1 Timothy 6:6-8

We are so glutted with luxuries that we have forgotten how to enjoy our necessities.

When we believe the lie that more is more we seek God less and less.

Hebrews 13:5-6

Soul satisfying contentment comes from the sufficiency of Christ.

When you have the indwelling presence of Christ and you are living for eternal things, you have the inner peace that produces contentment.

Contentment in the present depends on a belief in a future which is independent of material things. – Donald Guthrie

1 Timothy 6:9-10

Lies about money lead to temptation, traps and torment.

1 Timothy 6:11-12

The poorest person is not the one without money, it is the one without God.

Many of us don’t have a money problem we have a mindset problem. -Craig Goreschel
