You might, when you read Radical Grace for Finances. Martin and CeCe Jackson say so. They experienced financial grace over years of adventurous living and finally wrote a book of stories about it. They invite you to try similar adventures.
Here’s a quotation from the opening chapter of Radical Grace for Finances:
“The authors hope to persuade you that when Jesus spoke about money, food, clothes and shelter, He told us truth we can live by…We’ve tried out other books, and found their advice and plans unable to deliver all they claim. The most reliable source of advice is the Bible. So let’s look there.” Martin and CeCe looked there, and tried applying what they found. This resulted in occasional criticism from relatives and acquaintances, many adventures, and experience-based certainty that choosing trust and faith is good but not common sense.
They found that relying on God’s grace, mercy, and compassion doesn’t come naturally, but must be learned, taught by God Himself: “The Lord God tailor makes His lessons in finances for each of His companions. Each of us has our own crooked, wordly thinking about economics. Some are reckless spenders, running up too much debt. Others are stingy and too cheap to get what they really need. Some steal from others in various ways. Some seek to get rich through gambling. Some take irrational risks in the stock market and so on…When we let the Lord God work in our financial matters, His grace meets us in our weakness.” Which weakness of yours needs God’s grace?
