Financial health can be attacked and undermined by toxic attitudes towards money and wealth. We must identify these attitudes of pride and poverty, and then replace them with an attitude of gratitude. The best way to express and cultivate gratitude is with generosity.

This message is part of our series ‘Legacy: the Bible’s guide to all you leave behind.’ What did you leave in your wake today? Some people leave a trail of destruction wherever they go while others leave a trail of blessing. In this 3 week series we’ll dig into the ancient wisdom of the Bible to shape the way money impacts our life today and our legacy tomorrow. This is far more than will-writing or estate-planning. This is about the every-day blessing or destruction that we allow money to have in our lives and in the lives of the people around us. Through the ancient accounting of the Bible we find hope, healing and better days ahead.
