First Things First:
Learn how to Manage your Money from a Christian Perspective
Money plays a significant role in North
American culture and in our personal lives.
We are surrounded by influences that tell us
that life is better with money—preferably
with a lot of money. And for too many of

speaks to who we are, of how important or
successful we are. It also influences how we
Into this cultural mix are spoken these uncomfortable words of Jesus: “Real life is not measured by how much we own” (Luke 12:15). Similarly, we are reminded in Proverbs that being rich or poor has pitfalls: “For if I grow rich, I may deny you and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’ And if I am too poor, I may steal and thus insult God’s holy name” (Proverbs 30:8-9). Possessions are tools for living but should never become the central focus of our lives (Matthew 6:25-34).
It is a challenge to manage money wisely. What principles guide your day-to-day money decisions? What is important to you? What are your goals? Where do you go for guidance? What role do your faith and the teachings of the Bible have in your ongoing money decisions?
The lessons in this book focus on managing money from a biblical perspective and invite you to worship, to pursue balance, to be content, and to live generously. You will be challenged to think of yourself as a steward or manager of the resources and opportunities that come your way. You will be offered guidance in areas where you need help. We hope you will find the material useful as you plan your financial future.
