A Christian Perspective on Money: Generosity
The dictionary definition of money is something generally accepted as a medium of exchange, a measure of value, or a means of payment. In our world, many essential goods and services require us to have money. In order to survive we must eat. In order to eat we must have food. In order to have food we must either grow food ourselves or purchase food from someone else who has food. In order to grow food ourselves we must have seeds, good soil, etc. We must have something to exchange in order to receive the food we need to live. This source of exchange is called money. Typically money has been in the form of paper or coins, but more frequently now money is a card or a bank account number.
