Weird: Because Normal Isn’t Working – Money

My Monday review of Craig Groeschel’s book, “Weird: Because normal isn’t working.”

Section two of his book is focused on money. Here are some takeaways I got from this section:

“Being rich is always relative to a shifting standard.” (64)

“We must go from the normal mindset about money and wealth to a radically weird view: gratitude for all we have and stewardship of its use for the good of all.” (71)

“So maybe the question is not ‘What’s in your wallet?’ but ‘What’s in your heart?'” (73)

“You must be willing to live to give, not live to gain.” (88)

When you have generous eyes you ask these three questions:

1. “God, who can I bless in this present situation?”

2. “What do I have that I could use to make a difference?”

3. “What is the need here – and what can I do to meet it?” (91)

“The more we give away, the richer we become.” (91)
