The best recommendation I have for discussing money and possessions is Simple Rules for Money by James Harnish. It is based on Wesley’s instructions on earning, saving and giving money.  The book is readable, has only four chapters and comes with discussion helps at the end.  If you want to do more, you can purchase all kinds of materials under the title of Earn. Save. Give. by Harnish from Cokesbury.

All the resources available on money and possessions are worthless, if they are never used. If we really want folks to model God’s generosity, it will take time and effort.  The advertising industry is bombarding us with its message of spend, spend and spend some more every day.  And our peers are often modeling spend, spend and spend some more.  It is not easy to live a counter-culture lifestyle when it comes to money and possessions.

I encourage you to make plans today to begin a study or discussions clearly connecting money and faith.
