Roll-of-moneyā€œIf a person gets his attitude toward money straight, it will help straighten out almost every other area in his life.ā€ Billy Graham

What an incredible statement above by Billy Graham. In today’s economy and uncertain future, money has become the number one reason for worry in this nation,and throughout the world. We see people who used to have as much faith as money, now lose their faith as well as their money. Along with that loss comes a lack of understanding of how they went from rags to riches.

Today is one of those days where I could go on and on about a subject, but instead, I would like you to look at the scriptures below and pick the ones that apply to your situation and see if you can change your place by obeying God‘s Word. Some of the passages will apply to people who are comfortable in their finances as well as to those who don’t have enough money to buy food. Either way. like Billy Graham says, if you get your attitude towards money right, the rest will fall into place. I encourage you to pray on this and let me know if it makes any difference.
