One of the marks of a disciple of Jesus is how they view money compared to the mainstream culture around them. The world values money quite highly, practically worshipping money and the accumulation of it. We see lists, updated frequently like a scoreboard in a game, of who has the most. People who have lots of money seem to be asked their opinion of all kinds of subjects, as if wealth somehow makes their opinion worth more than the average person's. But money is just a tool. And, you know the old saying, "You can't take it with you." When a billionaire died, someone asked, "How much money did he leave behind?" A wise older man said, "All of it."
So, as followers of Jesus, how should we view money?
