Money Is Just Money

Unpolished Conference 2015

We don't typically think of pastors as avid blackjack players. But Ben Crawford and his Christian crew took millions from casinos across the country by legally counting cards. In this 30-minute session from the 2015 Unpolished Conference, Ben shares how his view of money changed as a result of playing blackjack. Money is just money, and, when we understand that, we can walk free of its chains.

In this 13-minute follow-up Q&A session, Brian Tome picks Ben's brain for more tidbits about developing a good philosophy of money.

Ultimately, your view of money can dictate the way you live your life. Ben challenges us to look at money as just money—whether we have a lot or a little, we can use it for the good God intended. As you look to launch a startup, bolster a growing business, or balance out your credit card, remember money is only money.
