In reading one of my devotionals today from Faith Gateway, I decided to take the quiz and figure out which was my money type. If you go to Tommy Brown.org, you too can take the quiz. It only takes you a few seconds. I was surprised to learn that it identified me correctly. Evidently, I am an Abraham type. According to the quiz results, “Abraham types use money in hospitable ways to demonstrate God’s loving kindness to others. For them, money is meant to make others feel valuable and special.”
Go and take the quiz yourself. It’s fun and free. You may also purchase the book for yourself. I have not read the book. Therefore, I cannot say whether it’s a good read.
THIS BOOK WILL DO THREE THINGS
- Help you understand why you think and feel the way you do about money, and help you grow.
- Help you better understand others who relate to money in different ways.
- Help leaders (business owners, pastors, fundraisers, etc.) understand financial and generosity motivations.
We long for financial well-being—the ability to handle resources in a God-honoring way that is true to our deepest sense of self, while maintaining healthy financial thoughts, emotions, and attitudes. When financial intentions and actions align, we’ll experience increased confidence and contentment with money. This experience of financial well-being is possible if we understand how God designed us in one of seven ways to handle money, which are the seven money types.
Discovering your money type – whether you are an Abraham (hospitality), an Isaac (discipline), a Jacob (beauty), a Joseph (connection), a Moses (endurance), an Aaron (humility), or a David (leadership) – will bring greater self-awareness, reduce internal financial tension, help you resolve financial conflict with others, and help you grow financially from a faith-based perspective. As you walk with Pastor Brown through the Scriptures you’ll find holistic financial pathways that lead to greater confidence and peace with money.
