Kingdom Calling vs. Financial Advisors: Hoarding Hurts

by Wes Bridel on March 21, 2009

in Introduction to Kingdom Calling

Financial advisors encourage you to be miserly and have the smallest possible impact on the world. This is the same financial advice given in most churches, either because that advice is coming from lay people or from church members who are practicing “traditional financial planning.” And for a lot of folks it’s not horrible advice, because most Americans, and most Christians for that matter, have a terrible spending problem. So the advice is to scrimp and save.

What has your money done for you lately?

What has your money done for you lately?

Now, saving is important. And not wasting your money frivolously is important. But if that’s where most of your focus goes, you can’t focus on being more productive. If such frivolous spending is a problem, then it needs to be addressed (and sometimes we spend considerable time with clients on this), but once there’s a reasonable amount of discipline here, there is far more that can be accomplished by focusing on producing more with what we have.

So where financial advisors encourage hoarding, Kingdom Calling focuses on cash flow, so your assets can actually send you money instead of giving you only paper gains. Think about it: you can’t eat a paper gain, but you can definitely be hurt by a paper loss.

We at Kingdom Calling also focus on “Velocity.” Velocity is an economic principle dealing with how hard your money works for you. Does it earn multiple rates of return, instead of being stuck somewhere only earning one rate or return (or possibly losing value)?

So where is your money, and what is it doing for you?

I thank God for his many examples of “velocity”, producing/reproducing, and multiplication in His Word – Makes me hungry and think of bread and fish and His warning of the leaven and doctrine of the Pharisees and Saducees in (Matt 16:1-10) – traditions and reasoning of men and not pure revelation and walking in “leaps” of faith in God and focusing on the natural “signs of the times” and not God’s supernatural kingdom – Causes me to want to cry out the answer to this question: “Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?” (Matt 16:13) For in His loaves and fish teaching Jesus reflects His ability and desire to multiply through us so that the world may be able to see, understand and declare with conviciton and the “rock” of revelation as Peter did, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” (Matt 16:16-18) For when we implement this teaching we glofify Him and His name in all the earth and He “gives us the keys of the kingdom of heaven”! (Matt 16:19)
