Hosted ByWill Forsyth, David Forsyth, and Simon Pranaitis

A show for Christians who love God’s Word, care about sound money, and want to learn about the moral case for Bitcoin.

#14: Save to Give

Save to Give (Episode 14) addresses the dangers of pursuing and studying money (even Bitcoin) – the temptation to take your focus off of God and His goodness and provision and worship the pursuit of money and the illusion of protection that it provides. Fortunately, God’s Word provides the antidote to this attitude through a consistent application of generosity. God Himself is a generous God and He gives abundantly to His children thereby enabling us to be less attached to our money and property and desirous of emulating Him by being generous with others.

As we continue to mine Scripture for its rich truth regarding God’s thoughts on wealth and money, we find the principle of generosity. God is generous with us spiritually by offering us the greatest gift we can imagine – the righteousness of Jesus Christ. His generosity extends to our physical well-being as well, and even encompasses those people who want nothing to do with Him (Matt. 5:45).

I Timothy 6:17-19 (NASB)

17 Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy. 18 Instruct them to do good, to be rich in good works, to be generous and ready to share, 19 storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of that which is life indeed.

Summary

  • God is abundantly generous in providing for the spiritual and physical needs of His people.
  • As children of God, we are to avoid the fleshly sins of greed, hoarding, and withholding from God
  • We can imitate and glorify God by learning contentment, generosity, and sacrificial giving.
  • Bitcoin provides Christians with the opportunity to wisely save in a money that will provide richly for years of generous support for families, churches, and care for the needy.
