money


Did you know that the biggest issue that Jesus spoke about was money?  Why?  That is the question.  To answer it, we must search the Bible for answers.  “For the LOVE of money, is the root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from their faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows”  1Timothy 6:10   We must analyze this verse carefully in that we can misinterpret what it says.  The worldly view on this is that if any person or christian that has an abundant amount of money, then it’s a bad thing.  Not true.  The ‘LOVE’ of money is the key word there.  That’s what we need to pay attention to and not let others misuse the true meaning of what’s being said.   I believe in giving back to God and giving him His tithe(10%), and in doing this keeps me & you from falling into greediness or into the love of money.

Have you heard that to look at your checkbook or on-line banking account(21st century now) and see what you spend your money on concludes that  “For where your treasure(money)  is, your heart will be also.”  What are you spending your $$ on?

Another verse to ponder is a continuation of the previous quote on your treasures, “No one can serve two masters.  Either he will hate the one and love the other or he will be devoted to one and despise the other.  You cannot serve both God and money.”  Matthew 6:24

Let’s get rid of those debts that burden us and live a life of freedom.  Let’s ask God to take control of our finances and help us take the right paths towards financial security.  Let’s ask Him to help us not put such a priority on money in our lives and let’s give that to Him.  Let’s show him by giving our tithes to Him as well as our sacrifices of service.

 “Lord, take control of my finances now as I hand them over to you and ask for your help, guidance and strength. In Jesus’ name.  Amen.”

  1. Brent and I just put ourselves on a fantastic budget. I am loving it! there’s so much freedom in it, in knowing penny to penny where it all goes. there’s no guess work or wondering if we’ll have too much month at the end of our money 😉 We’ve just recently come out of some very tough financial decisions and situations – so we are starting over, from scratch. we are very grateful. learning to be better stewards of Gods money – crucial!
