Why are so many Christians broke?
I was speaking to Chris Kidd today. Chris Kidd is an entrepreneur, investor, author, speaker and financial freedom coach. He became a millionaire at the age of 24 and is now coaching others so they can achieve their own financial freedom. Chris asked me a great question today. He said, “Jay, why are so many Christians broke?” They tithe and just expect money to fall from heaven…
Far too many people pray for financial miracles. They pray for treasure to fall from heaven: Please God make my MasterCard balance disappear. Please God deliver me from this mess. Please God get me a new job…make this stock double…on and on. We pray for the wrong things.
Instead of praying for miracles, we should be praying for new mindsets and new opportunities. Yet we continue to ask God to drop treasure from Heaven. It is often in our greatest struggles that God does his best work. When do you see God move most: when you are at the bottom or top? You clearly can see Him at work all the time, but we are far more likely to grow closer to Him in our greatest time of need. This is because we finally admit we cannot do it on our own. Stop praying for miracles instead focus on seizing the opportunities God is placing right before your eyes!
