30 Apr 4 Reasons Why you need to be intentional about where you spend your money
1) The Church Has Incredible Influence Through Its Purchasing Power
Church-going Christians in the US alone spend roughly $443 Billion (with a “B”) per year. That is nearly 15 times the amount the United Nations estimates the cost to end world hunger ($30 Billion annually). That is an incredible purchasing power. Where you sow your seeds matters!
2) Every Business Has a Mission Vision and Values. When You Spend with Them you fund that mission, vision, and values.
For example, If you wouldn’t donate money to a nonprofit that performs abortion, why would you spend your money with a corporation that donate money, lobbies with/for, and generally approves of/promotes abortion?
3) It’s where the bulk of your money goes.
Even if you are a double tither, you are still giving 80% of your income to various for-profit’s mission, vision, and values. That means that 80% of your income is funding the mission, vision, and values of corporations. Do you know what values you are funding?
