Calling Jesus Lord: Finances

In Matthew 7:21Jesus said, “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” To call Jesus Lord and do the will of the Father impacts everything we do and are, including our finances. Viewing and using money from God’s perspective (stewardship) liberates us spiritually and also in a very practical manner. When we respond to God’s grace with faithful stewardship, we find it:
