It should be no surprise to us that the Bible states, “the love of money is the root of all evil.” 1 Timothy 6:10
In This Episode We Look At:
People do crazy things when they love money.
Both in modern times as well as in biblical times, people have done crazy and foolish things in the pursuit of money.
Money is not a big deal to God. Our attitude toward money IS.
With over 2,300 scriptures written on the subject of money, riches and possessions; we have plenty of wisdom and truth to teach us how to have the right attitude toward money.
The sooner we learn God’s plan for money in our life, the sooner we can avoid these pitfalls and enjoy more peace and joy.
Our own money attitude may not be as being as extreme as the examples mentioned, but materialism and covetousness can be very subtle. It can slowly grow in the heart of the Christian.
The Healthy, Biblical view of Money
It is just a temporary tool to be used to God’s glory.
All that we do not use for His glory will perish–we take nothing to Heaven with us.
Proverbs 3:27-28 Withhold not good from them to whom it is due, when it is in the power of thine hand to do it. Say not unto thy neighbor, Go, and come again, and tomorrow I will give; when thou hast it by thee.
We will not run out of resources for good works, because God cannot run out of resources.
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work: 2 Cor 9:8
