The most obvious behavior is in how a person handles money. Even people who are unbelievers can have good money habits, but who — other than a genuine believer — would spend their money on the things of Christ. Here's an example:
- Spend less than you earn.
- Give to godly causes in keeping with one's income. (1 Corinthians 8-9)
- Don't give what you don't own.
- Don't promise to give what you don't have.
- Don't give under compulsion.
- Pay your debts. (Proverbs 22:7; Proverbs 13:11; Romans 13:8)
- Take care of your responsibilities. (1 Timothy 5:8 and 6:17-19)
- Your family's needs.
- Giving to God's work.
- After taking care of your responsibilities, enjoy what you've legitimately earned, because it is yours.
