You will note that right from the beginning we state that this book is not about money —and yet, you will see the word money throughout the book. We ask that you keep an open mind and heart and ask God to prepare your spirit to receive the message of this book. We invite you to use Ephesians 1:17-20 as a prayer before you begin. Father, give me the Spirit of wisdom and revelation so that I may know You better. I pray that as I read this book, the eyes of my heart may be enlightened in order that I may know the hope to which you have called me, the riches of Your glorious inheritance in Your holy people and Your incomparably great power for us who believe. As you begin, take a few moments and ask yourself these questions: 1. Is my relationship with money affecting my relationship with Jesus? 2. Who and what influences my spending decisions? 3. What does the Bible mean when it says we cannot serve both God and mammon? D E A R R E A D E R , Unmasking_Mammon_book_4.5.indd 4 2018-07-11 7:41 AM
