There has been a philosophy dating back centuries that teaches that all things material are evil and all things spiritual are good. According to this thinking, if you really want to be spiritual, you will divest yourself of all your material possession, take a vow of poverty, and separate yourself as much as is humanly possible from the evil, material world.
Most pastors avoid teaching a proper perspective on material possessions because they themselves are often not sure exactly what they believe about wealth. Hence, the silence on this subject in churches is almost deafening.
I have written this book to break the silence. I speak plainly about your material things and challenge you to think spiritually about them. This book is not intended to only change the way you think, but more importantly, to change the way you live.
May this book provide you new spiritual thoughts on your same old material things.
