Here’s a short simple question I struggle with: As a Christian, do we have disposable income? After I’ve paid my taxes, after I’ve paid my bills, after I’ve tithed to the church, after I’ve saved up for retirement and college; if after all that I still have some money left over, is this money disposable? Am I being a good steward of what God has given me if I take that money and invest it in stocks, bonds, or CDs? How about buying a sports car? How about buying that killer must-have piece of avionics for the plane? How about building a plane?
What is the Biblical answer? I’m sure any of these things are legal from a scriptural sense. However, I have to ask myself if I’m truly being a good steward of the money God has entrusted to me? I don’t really know the answer but am interested in your comments. I’m going to be researching this myself and praying about it in my quiet time.
