How to Use Your Money To Grow Your Character

by

The old adage said, mon­ey can’t buy hap­pi­ness, but it can buy things that will make you hap­py.” And so, we spend our mon­ey on things that bring com­fort to us. We spend mon­ey to go to the places we’ve nev­er been off, we spend in try­ing out the new restau­rant in the town, get togeth­er with the fam­i­ly, with friends, with col­leagues and so more.

There are so many things that can bring hap­pi­ness to us. But did you know that you can use your mon­ey to grow your char­ac­ter? No won­der the Bible talks more about mon­ey than hell. Because the truth is, mon­ey can mold our char­ac­ter. You have seen how many peo­ple who are inse­cure drag­ging down oth­er peo­ple for the sake of mon­ey.

Peter Grandich author of Con­fes­sions of a Wall Street Whiz Kid “ said, “Our whole cul­ture now is built on the premise that we have to have more mon­ey and more stuff to feel hap­py and secure… that more stuff equals more hap­pi­ness”

 

With this kind of culture we have right now, can we really grow our character using our money?

 

The answer is yes.

HOW TO USE YOUR MONEY TO GROW YOUR CHARACTER

 

1. Invest it in truth and wis­dom.

Proverbs 23:23 CEV says: “Invest in truth and wis­dom, dis­ci­pline and good sense and don’t part with them.”

One of the things we can do to invest our mon­ey in truth and wis­dom is by buy­ing books writ­ten by Chris­t­ian Authors. When we read the books they have writ­ten, we learn from their expe­ri­ences, we learn how God shaped them to be the per­son God want­ed them to be.

I often read Chris­t­ian books besides from the Bible as it gives me spir­i­tu­al nour­ish­ment. It refresh­es my faith and gives me a wider per­spec­tive of faith in God.

And last­ly,

 

2. Share what you have learned to oth­ers.

Proverbs 20:15 NIV “Gold there is, and rubies in abun­dance, but lips that speak knowl­edge are a rare jew­el.”

There’s no bet­ter way to learn than expe­ri­enc­ing it on your own. And the best way to retain a les­son in our mind is to teach it to oth­ers, and I have been doing it for the last five years since I became a gen­uine Chris­t­ian.

What God spoke to me, what I learned from the books or blogs writ­ten by Chris­t­ian authors, I always make sure to teach and share it to oth­ers. Because in that way, I am not just invest­ing in my own char­ac­ter, but I also invest­ing on other’s char­ac­ter and that’s how dis­ci­ple­ship works — impart­ing the whole of your­self to anoth­er per­son.

And I believe God is hap­py if we spend our mon­ey that way.
