I had a love-hate relationship with money for much of my life. Money was a huge source of tension in my home growing up; the cause of endless arguments between my parents. And so without realizing it, I came to be suspicious of money; thinking that it was responsible for our unhappy home (so it must be bad), and yet wanting it (so I must be bad too).
When I started to change my attitude about money; when I began blessing it (instead of cursing it), more money flowed into my life. When I was afraid of money (afraid I wouldn’t have enough, afraid I wouldn’t look like a legitimate minister if I had wealth, afraid of what others would think of me….) it stayed away.
Money is neutral….until we put our judgements on it. It is a vital part our lives and our world, why not bless it? Why not enjoy it?
“Wealth is not his who has it, but his who enjoys it“. Benjamin Franklin
If you would like the little wallet above (it is new…I got it at the thrift store a couple of weeks ago, but it is too small for my needs…it’s a Liz Claiborne), just post a comment with some positive thought about money. I will choose a random winner on Saturday the 29th!
