God and Money

Call me crazy. Or call me Woo-Woo. But I firmly believe financial success is a spiritual journey; financial abundance is a divine right; and financial responsibility is a sacred duty.

Something happens when you bring faith into finances. The often overwhelming task of making more money and managing it wisely becomes not only easier but more meaningful.

Look at it this way. You and I are here for a purpose. Money is a vital tool for doing what we were put on this planet to do. How can you possibly follow your God given destiny if you’re drowning in debt, struggling to make ends meet?

Disciplined spending, sufficient earnings, habitual savings and prudent investing are sacred tools for not only living your best life but making the world a better place.

Money, I believe, is God made visible.

    Thanks for the reminder Barbara. I need to trust that, and start believing it more, rather than making excuses, and settling for less in life all the time! Always love your words of wisdom!

      Thank YOU, Pam. I believe a regular spiritual practice helps to reaffirm this…and it doesn’t need to be long. 5 mins is all you need.

    Hi Barbara, I definitely agree, and am excited you continue to remind everyone we are spiritual beings having a human experience, born to be abundant on many levels. Your books (as well as my prudent Chinese mother!) have been part of my journey of continuing to build and maintain financial wealth. Truly appreciate your gifts and messages!

    Short, powerful, pithy, and . . . . though differently said. . . I think totally true! “Money is God made visible.” Hmmm. I have never heard it put quite that way before, but I DO believe you are right. Thank you, Barbara, for these powerful and potent thoughts and words!
    P.S. I have been following your newsletters and earlier blogs for some time, and have at least 3 of your books. I knew you as an acquaintance eons ago in the Kansas City Chapter of ASTD. Small world! So very happy to know of your persevering journey which has led to evolved knowing and happy success!
