Your Identity Is Not In Money

Identity confusion is a major problem in our culture.

Your identity in God’s kingdom is not related to your income or lack of income. It’s not derived from your education or lack of education. It’s not taken from your accomplishments, your failures, or from culture. Your true identity is found in John 1:12, Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God…” We belong to the family of the Lord God Almighty.

Now listen carefully. A college degree, a big company, lots of money, and a political office are temporary at best. They pale in comparison to our eternal identity. We should make decisions based upon that Identity, not the temporal ones, and money doesn’t determine our identity. Whether you’re rich, poor, or bankrupt, money is simply a tool in the hands of a child of God. Anchoring our soul in our real identity allows us to weather the storms, recover from the setbacks, and persevere during our trials because he has promised He will never leave us or forsake us.

God doesn’t want money to become our identity. When he challenged the Rich Young Ruler to sell all his possessions and give to the poor, he was asking him to change his identity to that of a child of God. He wasn’t insisting that He become poor. He was offering him the opportunity to have true riches!
