Series on Gaining Financial Freedom

GAINING FINANCIAL FREEDOM (PART 5)

Part 5: “Financial Freedom Means Being Generous”

Christian stewardship is the practical realization that everything we have is a gift from God. Stewardship expresses itself as an integral force in Christian life by motivating us to share our goods with others. We are absolute owners of nothing; rather, we are stewards of all we receive and must use such resources responsibly in our lifelong work of building up the Kingdom of God. (Principles and Guidelines for Fund Raising, by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, Nov. 16, 1977.)

Pope Paul VI says in Paths of the Church: “Is not charity the focal point of the religious economy of the Old Testament and the New? Is it not to charity that the progress of spiritual experience in the Church leads?” Charity is “the first and the highest, in the scale of religious and moral values.”

“If you want to receive, give. If you ask for yourself what you deny to others, your asking is a mockery…. Do not lose by saving, but gather in by scattering. Give to the poor, and you give to yourself. You will not be allowed to keep what you have refused to give to others.” (St. Peter Chrysologus)

“When the son of Man comes in his glory… He will say to those on his left: ‘Out of my sight, you condemned…. As often as you neglected to do it to one of these least ones, you neglected to do it to me.'” (Matthew 25:31,41,45)
