Financial corruption is eating up the world today, leaders are playing around with national funds, employers embezzling organizations’ monies, friends duping friends, staff robbing banks, cheats hacking into people’s accounts and making away with their monies. People are hardly willing to trust, especially when it has to do with money. Even in homes some couples cannot trust each other when it comes to money.
Unfortunately some believers have not conquered greed, some Church leaders are still battling with lack of financial integrity. Brethren in church are duping, cheating and stealing from one another. Some employer brethren are afraid to employ a brother or sister in church for fear of what they might be capable of doing with their finances.
But this should not be, we (believers) should be different, we should give everyone we have to deal with financially good grounds to trust us. No one should loose sleep over monies entrusted to us.
Some project supervisors working to rebuild the temple under King Josiah’s rule were found completely honest in handling finances, this too should be our testimony.
They did not require an accounting from those to whom they gave the money to pay the workers, because they acted with complete honesty. 2 Kings 12:15 NIV
