The biggest issue with money is the way we think about it.
Money makes us talk in terms of percentages and interest, loss and gain, and returns on investment. Our natural inclination is to connect our giving and spending to what will result in the biggest gain for ourselves and, as an afterthought, for others and the church.
What would happen if, instead of focusing on how we budgeted our money, we changed the way we thought about money.
By exploring the Biblical narrative, The Money Experiment will challenge you to embrace financial simplicity-big money words not included.
How it works:
1. Read and discuss each chapter with your group.
2. Pick one of the experiments (challenges to live intentionally) to do throughout the week.
3. Journal your thoughts and experiences.
4. Share your experiences as a group the following week.
What would happen if, instead of focusing on how we budget our money, we changed the way we thought about money? By exploring the Biblical narrative, The Money Experiment will challenge readers to not only think, but live, differently--encouraging them to place their entire lives, including their money, inside God’s story and mission.
