I am blessed beyond measure to have a wife that is helping our family step into the faithfulness that God desires. She has taken over our finances and helped us find ways to spend more wisely, cutback and still maintain a fulfilled life. Christians are called to be faithful with what God has given us so that we can experience freedom, peace and the joy of giving. It is important, as we see in the story of the talents given to the servants, to understand that what we have been given is not our own (Matt. 25:14-30). The money and blessings that we have, even if we have worked for them, are gifts from God and are not meant for our own consumption.

It is my great hope that all of us will hear someday: “His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a little, I will set you over much; enter into the joy of your master” (RSV Matt. 25:21).
