The Love of Money

The Love of Money

Matthew 6:24

The Message (MSG)

24 “You can’t worship two gods at once. Loving one god, you’ll end up hating the other. Adoration of one feeds contempt for the other. You can’t worship God and Money both.

Money is needed to live here on earth.  Money is needed to purchase food, clothing and shelter. Let it be known that nothing is wrong with having money.  It is blessing.  It is when money becomes a god problems start.   As the scripture states we can not serve two gods. There is only one living God and He made money.  God has the ability to give us wealth.

2 Corinthians 9:8-11 (The Message)

God can pour on the blessings in astonishing ways so that you’re ready for anything and everything, more than just ready to do what needs to be done. As one psalmist puts it,He throws caution to the winds,  giving to the needy in reckless abandon. His right-living, right-giving ways  never run out, never wear out.This most generous God who gives seed to the farmer that becomes bread for your meals is more than extravagant with you. He gives you something you can then give away, which grows into full-formed lives, robust in God, wealthy in every way, so that you can be generous in every way, producing with us great praise to God.
If God can do so much for us and give us such a blessing so that we can be a blessing, why is money made a god.  Money can not make us wealthy, healthy or give witty inventions to obtain wealth.  God can do all these things and more.
On this day and the days to come, serve only God with the big G. Let the god with the little g know that God is in control.
Be Blessed!
