Today, pastor and author Paul David Tripp joins Rob West to discuss how our view and handling of money reveals the contents of our hearts. Paul also explains how to break the grip of money and allow God to reorient our hearts. Pastor Tripp is the author of more than 30 books and videos on Christian living and his latest book is "Redeeming Money: How God Reveals and Reorients Our Hearts." Colossians 2:8 warns, "See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ." Today, Rob and Paul address these topics and questions: ●You say that money issues are heart issues and missing that point is very important. Was that a point that led you to write this book? ●Money is the clearest indicator of what's happening in someone's life spiritually. You talk a lot about identity. What is it about identity that we need to understand? ●We can't solve problems with more money, right? ●How would you articulate a Biblical/world view of money? ●What was the passage in Ephesians that changed everything for your view of money? ●As giving calibrates our hearts to the Ultimate Giver, breaking the grip of money over our lives, what do you believe the act of giving does to our heart? ●Can you apply to this in marriage as well? Through December 31, 2021, you can receive a copy of "Redeeming Money" with a minimum donation of $25 to MoneyWise. Learn more about Pastor Paul David Tripp at his website: paultripp.com.
