This week at unTapped, we will be discussing money. Faith and money are subjects that are often intermixed:
righteousness is this [...] give away wealth out of love for [Allah] to the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer and the beggars and for (the emancipation of) the captives, and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate; and the performers of their promise when they make a promise, and the patient in distress and affliction and in time of conflicts– these are they who are true (to themselves) and these are they who guard (against evil).
- The Qu'ran, Surah 2:177
Human happiness and human satisfaction must ultimately come from within oneself. It is wrong to expect some final satisfaction to come from money
- Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyattso
Where your treasure is, there your heart will be too.
- Jesus, Luke 12:34
The rich are wise in their own eyes;
one who is poor and discerning sees how deluded they are.
- Proverbs 28:11
So, what do you think about money? Is money intrinsically good or evil? Or, is money amoral? Do the rich owe anything more to society than the poor?
Join us for a fascinating conversation about wealth and faith. Thursday night, 7pm, Short's Brewing in downtown Bellaire!
