God, Money & Me
By Paul De Jong
Money – The root or all evil or a blessing?
De Jong argues that it depends on your priorities. Written from a combination of Biblical principles and worldwide experiences, this book addresses the issue mentioned most in the Bible – Money.
He addresses myths about money and outlines the principles for people to live by. Particularly that we are called to be blessed, however there are some principles to work through to be blessed. Included in this is the need to be loyal, fruitful, to sow and reap.
Many of the difficulties that people have with money, including debt, conflict, arguments, and the lack of money are addressed. De Jong addresses why many are not blessed – 80% of Christians don’t regularly tithe. He argues that money is a testing ground for people, to determine if they can handle what they have and more.
I found the book to be extremely practical, not just providing the reasons why, but also the how. It outlines God’s pathway to a blessed financial future. The practical 10/10/10/70 principle for financial success is worth the price of the book. This principle will unlock financial freedom for many.
The teaching on the four levels of giving (Self Interest, Spiritual Gratitude, Selfless obedience, and Supernatural Revelation) is new, but biblically based. It challenged my thinking on my current giving.
Money – Blessing or curse? I found that De Jong teaches that it depends on your attitude.
This book will unlock financial freedom, for those who read it and implement the principles Paul De Jong teaches.
