The biggest test of our stewardship and attitude is the test of money. This is one test many have failed because when the test was placed before them, they took it for an opportunity to exploit and rob the innocent.
You will always never have enough money, this is why money is used as a test of character, so the character you display is important because it defines how you will behave when entrusted with the responsibility of stewardship.
Money is not the beginning and end of a good life; however, money is a tool that can bring about a good life, you must understand that it is not the only tool but one of the tools. God is the final thing in all that equation, he created all things and he sustains them.
When you take God as the only true lasting element in your equation, then you will place money where it belongs and that is to serve you. Always be about God and money will be about you.
The scriptures also point to us to seek first the kingdom and realm of God and the other small things will be an addition (Matthew 6:33) and not something we will chase after, but instead, it responds to us.
