Last Sunday, we explored the concept of "money scripts" and how they greatly influence our money decisions. Discover practical insights and biblical wisdom to help you overcome financial fears and experience the freedom that comes with wise money management.


 Jesus spoke extensively about money as a practical aspect of life that requires wise management, and Scripture provides valuable guidance about preventing money from becoming an obstacle in our spiritual lives.

"Money scripts" are unconscious beliefs about money that shape our financial decisions. These scripts can be inherited from generational, childhood, social, gender, occupational, religious, educational, or psychological influences. Take some time this week to identify your money scripts and assess whether they align with Jesus and Scripture. By reframing and rewriting our money scripts, we can move from fear to freedom and experience financial wisdom in our lives!


Money scripts greatly influence our money decisions

Our financial blueprints or money scripts guide how we think about, spend, save, and share money, often without us even realizing it.

Money scripts come from various sources

These scripts can be inherited from previous generations, shaped by childhood experiences, influenced by social and cultural factors, or rooted in personal beliefs and psychology.

Identifying and Reframing money scripts

Take some time to learn which money scripts have influenced your financial decisions:  generational scripts, childhood scripts, social scripts, gender scripts, occupational scripts, religious scripts, educational scripts, and psychological scripts.   identify our current money scripts, assess if they help or hinder our financial freedom, and align them with Jesus and Scripture. By reframing our money scripts, we can make healthier financial decisions.


To apply the message of the sermon in your own life:

  1. Reflect on your own money scripts: Take time to identify and understand the beliefs and attitudes you have about money, considering their origins and influences.
  2. Study biblical principles on money: Explore passages like Proverbs 14:15, Matthew 6:19-21, and 1 Timothy 6:10 to gain insight into God's perspective on financial matters.
  3. Compare and reframe your money scripts: Evaluate your current money scripts and determine if they align with the biblical principles you've studied. Consider reframing them to reflect a healthier and wiser perspective.
  4. Practice the new scripts: Choose one new money script that aligns better with biblical principles and focus on it for the next week. Remind yourself of it daily to reinforce the change in your mindset and decision-making.
  5. Reflect and share: After a week, evaluate how the new money script has influenced your thoughts and actions regarding money. Consider sharing your experience with a trusted friend, mentor, or community to foster accountability and support.

Going Deeper

Go deeper in your personal reflection by considering how God can use your financial journey, including your past mistakes and struggles, to shape you and draw you closer to Him. Trust in His faithfulness and purpose, knowing that He can redeem any financial situation and guide you towards a path of wisdom, freedom, and generosity.

 "The simple believe anything, but the prudent give thought to their steps." (Proverbs 14:15)

Embrace the wisdom of this verse and take the necessary steps to identify, compare, reframe, and rewrite your money scripts. As you do so, you'll experience a transformation from financial fears to freedom, aligning your financial decisions with Jesus and Scripture. Trust in God's guidance, seek His wisdom, and embark on this journey towards a more empowered and purposeful financial life.
