Attitudes to money

The Bible seems to have a lot to say about attitudes to money. It has struck me often when reading the Bible just how much there seems to be about how we should think about money. It seems like the obsession with money isn't just a product of society now, but something that has plagued humanity for thousands of years.

As Christians we should stand out from the world with our attitude to money. People should look at us and see that our life doesn't revolve around money - our goal should clearly be different to the goal of many: accumulating as much money as possible.

So how about this? The BBC are making a new series on different attitudes to money. How about applying - how about giving the UK the chance to see what the Christian attitude to money is, showing how you live for something far more exciting? Maybe you should apply?

Dunno yet. I wouldn't be very good. You'd be good though - you should apply!
