"High Heels to High Income" Articles > The Divine Purpose of Money for the Spiritual Entrepreneur


Money is not evil and neither is having enough of it. Sure there are some evil people in the world with money, but guess what? There are also some evil people in the world without money. Money in the hands of a good person will be used for good things, and money in the hands of a not so good person will probably be used for not so good things. We need money to do even the basic things in life, for example, eat, have shelter over our head, and pay our bills. And we also need money to do some of the things we desire to do.

Another reason that money is important is so that we can bless other people and support causes that we are passionate about. If more good people had more money then more good could be done for others and in the world. For many of my younger years I felt guilty for desiring more money, and for wanting to live a life that included financial abundance. I didn't understand the divine purpose of money. I felt like spirituality and financial prosperity didn't go together. And it wasn't until after I began to study the mindset and prosperity that I began to have a shift in my thinking and a shift in my money.

Many of us as spiritual entrepreneurs have been called to help causes financially. That means that you are called to be a financial blessing to someone, a charity, or an organization. For example, you may have been called to help fund programs for the youth, or you may have been called to help build an orphanage, or you may have been called to help build a homeless shelter, or you may have been called to help fund any of the numerous causes that need funding.

Being a spiritual entrepreneur who is called to support causes doesn't mean that you are just giving dollars here and there without any real connection. It means that you are giving financially as you are divinely led to. There is more to giving that just giving emotionally or simply giving out of guilt. Giving has a divine purpose.

I didn't realize for a long time that being a giver is a calling too. I am sure that we all know people who are not financially generous. I believe that our calling is just as important as anyone else's calling, and that together we can have a profound impact in the lives of others and in the world.

Yes, money has a divine purpose. And it is up to each one of us as spiritual entrepreneurs to find out exactly what the divine purpose of our money is. And once that is revealed to us we should never look at money the same again.
