Hello family – we are going to continue our discussion on The Matters of Money.
1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Oh BOY! Let’s look at the scripture above. Now firstly, lets understand what the Apostle Paul is saying – he isn’t saying money is the root of all evil but “THE LOVE” of money is the root of all evil. See as a disciplined person, you can’t love anything more than you love God – and money has a way of hoarding all of your love. It’s like the snowball effect, the more you entertain this ungodly union with money the more it grows. I’ve seen people lose relationships, leave the Faith, and even kill themselves and their families over MONEY!
See money has a unique quality – it’s a mirror. Money will be to you what you are to it, if you have evil in your heart, then money will magnify that evil, if you have good in your heart then money will magnify that good. This is what makes money so powerful, it show you the condition of your own heart.
Knowing what the scriptures says in Matthew 24:12 – How in the last days the Hearts of many will wax cold and compare it to the insatiable desire to gain more money, you can see what state the world is in. There is a safety net that we can depend on and that is Matthew 6:33 Seek you FIRST the Kingdom of God and all his righteousness and all these things will be added unto you. You will have to read the entire chapter of Matthew 6 to understand the term “all these things”, but this scripture is a safe guard from allowing money and things to become or stay idols in your life. SEEK GOD FIRST!
Today I want you to monitor the frequency of your heart, if God gave you a one-million dollars today, what would the mirror of money show you about you? SELAH
