So, what is a mantra? It’s simple, a rule we live by, something that initiates action on our part.
Here are several examples:
- The Raider’s first-run mantra became predictable, allowing their opponent to rack up an enviable score.
- The old cowboy’s mantra of feeding his horse before taking time for his own breakfast was as worn-in as a weathered pair of boots.
Our mantra is a personal rule we live by. It may not be law, and we probably won’t be criticized if we let it slip, but it’s important to us, so much that it jars us into action.
Hebrews 13:5 gives us our 4 Money Mantras from God:
“Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’ ”
Let’s look at each of our mantras separately.
Money Mantra #1:
Keep your life free from the love of money.
When money becomes all important, people around us begin to suffer. We need balance in everything we do.
Money Mantra #2:
Be content with what you have.
More will never be enough. Even the richest sultan or king has things they cannot obtain.
Money Mantra #3:
God will never leave you.
God wants to be your financial guide. His rules for financial success are scattered throughout the Word.
Money Mantra #4:
God will never forsake you.
When financial disaster batters at your door, you are never alone. God holds your hand and will renew you to your former success.
What’s your money mantra? Saving ten percent of every check? Coupon shopping? Keeping a budget?
A mantra is automatic. You do it because you can’t help yourself. God’s mantras are the same. When we invest in him, God will invest his time and energy in us.
Let’s take the challenge to be financially responsible before God.
