How Much More Do You Need?
By Rick Warren

“Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.’” Hebrews 13:5 (NIV)

Many people are feeling financial instability these days—no matter how much they have in the bank. Some are wondering, Am I going to have a job next week? What’s going to happen to the economy? Will I have enough to do the things I want to do with my life?

If you’re asking those questions, then you need to remember God’s promise in Hebrews 13:5“Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, ‘Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you’” (NIV).

Did you see that? God's promise to never leave you is connected to your financial future. He’s saying there’s no need for you to love money. You can be content with what you have. You don’t need to hoard your resources—because you have the assurance of God’s presence. God always sees you and always knows what you need. And because God is love, he will never forsake you, including when you are in need.

What are you trusting for your future financial security? Are you trusting in your possessions or in God's presence?

If you have a hard time letting go of money, tithing, or being generous, then you are revealing a lack of faith. You don't really believe God will keep his many promises to take care of you. You're living with a scarcity mentality.

Try instead to start living with God’s promises in mind. Once you do that, you will not have to hoard because you will trust God. You will hold your resources with an open hand. This is the only way to live a purposeful life!
