Book Excerpt: Wealth and the Will of God by Paul G. Schervish and Keith Whitaker

‘What is wealth, how do we recognize it, and what is it for? How do we undersand it in the context of faith, which assigns ultimacy to God alone? These are some of the broader questions the story poses, and they are the focus of this book. To explore answers, we consider six great theologians, philosophers, and spiriitual leaders and their thoughts on life and wealth, especially how riches can serve ultimate purposes. The book does consider the nature of giving and spending money via consuming, tithing, or other means, but its scope goes beyond philanthropy. Those topics are examined as they relate more to the meaning and purpose of life for people of faith.

Finding Meaning and Purpose

 

Two of the most important questions we all ask ourselves are:
 

“Why am I here?”
 
“What is the meaning and purpose of my life?”
 
At Lugen Family Office, we will be sharing with you many thoughts from our research into these questions. So let’s begin.
 
We believe that your life is your Ultimate Gift. To paraphrase my friend, Jim Stovall, you find meaning in life by discovering your unique abilities and you discover your purpose in life by sharing your gifts with others.
 
Australian Matthew Kelly, author of The Rhythm of Life, says that the essential meaning and purpose of life is to become “the best version of yourself.” We hear a similar message from Gandhi, “Be the change you want to see in the world.”
 
Live each day with passion and share your gift with the world. This is the only way you can make a difference in the world and fulfill your life purpose.
