My Struggle to Be a Good Steward: Balancing Spiritual and Financial Discipline

I really enjoy the tongue in cheek posts on J Money’s Budgets are Sexy blog. Wednesday, he wrote a piece called “I changed my philosophy on money and will be storing my treasures in heaven and not on this earth.” It comes from a line from an email he got from a reader who was unsubscribing, prompting questions about the tension between giving and saving. This tension has been on my mind a lot lately because this year I’ve joined my church’s stewardship committee. Giving isn’t always easy, and I struggle to be a good steward of all of the many gifts in my life.
