No Little People

May 31, 2011

Ray Ortlund on the greater wealth from Francis Schaeffer’s No Little People:

The ‘true riches’ obviously have nothing to do with money.  To have spiritual power to overcome the awfulness of the post-Christian world — that is true riches.  The church is constantly saying, ‘Where’s our power? Where’s our power?’  Jesus’ statement here gives us at least part of the answer.  We must use money with a view to what counts in eternity.  If a child cannot take his father’s money, go to the store, purchase what is requested and return home with the change, it does not make sense for the father to increase his allowance.  So since . . . the money we handle is not our own, if we do not bring it under the lordship of Christ, we will not be given the greater wealth of spiritual power.
