UPDATE: I asked a question on Facebook and to friends a few weeks ago that got a lot of interest.
What would you do if money were no object?
Within 30 seconds I had answers, and they were compelling. There are great things in our hearts–things like caring for orphans in foreign countries, feeding families and radically living out Christianity with the most broken people in our hometowns.
I asked myself the same question and was convicted to the core when my next thought was:
Is money really an object?
In some cases, it absolutely seems to be. But–our God supplies all our need. Without faith, it’s impossible to please Him. How big are the dreams in your heart? Does the intensity of your prayer life match? Does your faith prove itself tangibly? Mine doesn’t, regularly. Changing that is an immediate next step.
In other cases, money really isn’t an object at all. Our own fear, hesitation, insecurity, laziness, distraction…or something…is. I recently read a quote I can’t get out of my head:
Discipline is just choosing between what you want now and what you want most. – Unknown
Money is no object to discipline.
Money is no object to faith.
Money is no object to God.
Trying to wrap my heart around this…

I asked this question on Facebook and Twitter yesterday, and the answers really got me thinking. People’s first-blush responses to the question tell me so much about them.
So, now I ask you – What would you do if money were no object?
