Quotes from Money and the Prosperous Soul:
If we belong to Christ, all things are ours. This reality has the power to silence every anxiety and impulse that would betray us into debt and consumption.
The only way to unbend our soul from a poverty paradigm is to displace the lie of lack by embracing the core message of the prosperous soul: There is always enough. ... this message of abundance that "all things are yours" will establish your soul in your God-given identity and purpose.
It is a glorious thing to learn the secret joy of giving all that we are, including our dreams, to God, whether in seasons of lack, prosperity, joy or pain.
Mammon urges us to use the power of wealth to acquire things and to attract people to ourselves. It manipulates our need for acceptance and significance by promising us that wealth can buy us meaningful connections and a compelling image.
Embracing and living in our divine purpose as prosperous souls and supernatural stewards is more art than science ... we must learn to take the materials of life as they come to us -- in all their messiness, emotions and vulnerability --and discover ways of creating beauty, hope, joy, love and friendship from them all.
