Over the past few days on Bold Steps, we’ve been talking about how our finances can represent spiritual patterns … and issues. In fact, there are over 2,350 verses in the Bible related specifically to money and material possessions. So, it’s safe to say that these issues are important to God! But, we need to also be careful to not swing to the other side and say that if we had a million dollars, we’d be super spiritual and have no problems … Pastor Mark Jobe says that money is simply a tool. And what you choose to do with that tool, can bring a blessing … or a curse in your life. But hopefully, after today’s message, you’ll walk away with some powerful principles that change your life … and not just your checkbook. Today’s message comes from the book of 2 Corinthians and it’s called, Breaking the Spirit of Mammon.
