Money

  We are warned in the Bible about the danger of falling in love with money, yet money is very necessary in our society.  It has been said that money is a wonderful servant, but a terrible master.  Money has the potential to do a either a world of good or a world of harm.  Jesus said it is the ultimate test of one’s true spiritual condition, because one’s treasure and one’s heart will always be in the same place, meaning of course, one’s heart will identify his true treasure.  It is important, not only how we use our money, but how we get it.  The Bible principle is that we are to get our money by honest means, in ways that provide a needed product or service to society, but not in ways that will bring hurt to others.  Work hard, honor God with your substance by providing for your own, giving to those who are truly in need, and do like the ant in Proverbs 6: save some for the winter days.  Then, one last word of warning: don’t let money become your ultimate security.  God is our portion, He is our refuge and our strength.  We have His promise that if we will seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, He will see that we have what we need.
