The Weight of Wealth

For those who have felt The Weight of Wealth, or the WOW factor as a friend called it, no real explanation is needed. Recently, I was discussing with a client and friend this WOW factor at great length, and he described the questions he had concerning his children and grandchildren. How much should I leave them? When should I leave it for them? Would they be better or worse stewards if they received an inheritance early rather than late? Even greater was the Weight he felt in light of the significant wealth he had been entrusted and the needs of our world and God's Kingdom. All of these are good questions that need to be discussed. Scripture is replete with examples of good and bad stewardship, and our culture today is no less representative.

I rarely run into anyone who wants to be a 'poor steward,' but I often run into those who are laboring with the big questions alone due to the barriers of wealth or the inability of their spiritual leaders to relate or consult. This blog will be a biblically based resource for those of us who desire wisdom in the area of the money and possessions. There are also several other invaluable resources out there I will highlight as we progress. Feel free to add your two cents or resources you find that should be shared.
