“Dear Lord, I’m so broke and be­hind in my bills that I found a wal­let in the gro­cery store this week­end, and nearly didn’t re­turn it. My con­science got the best of me and I took it to the cus­tomer desk, where the man who’d lost it was stand­ing. He thanked me pro­fusely, but I was so ashamed— he had no idea I was al­most a thief! Please help me keep my fi­nan­cial anx­i­ety from chang­ing me in the wrong ways.”

Wis­dom of the Word

Who­ever trusts in his riches will fall, but the right­eous will flour­ish like a green leaf. —Proverbs 11:28

We un­der­stand and yet…

Try as we might not to fo­cus on money, anx­i­ety sets in when cash runs short. It’s what keeps us fed and clothed. How can we not worry?
