I tell leaders regularly that the church’s silence on the subject of money leaves the view of the culture unopposed in the mind of most believers. Recognizing that music is one of the best reflections we have about cultural points of view, I did a Google search to see what songs I could find about money.
Here is a list of 15. Some of these I recognize. Some I don’t.
What I did see was evidence that if church leaders refuse to talk about money and these messages are left unfiltered by a Biblical worldview, then the person in the pew has little to challenge well-established and consistently reinforced cultural norms.
When was the last time you offered an alternative lens through which to view money?
