Overview

In this module/week, we will tie together what we have learned about the need for economic development with the call of the gospel on our lives to be good stewards. In the gospels, Jesus’ primary message was about love, but second to this was his message about the use of money. It is important for Christians to know how to deal with money and the eternal purpose of our money. During this module/week, we will reflect on why Christians should be concerned with economic development.
