Nothing is wrong with being rich and having a lot of money. We can use money to help others and as believers, use it to get the message of Jesus love to those who need it. However, letting money control us, becoming prideful, doing sinful things to get money, and serving money above God is sinful. Dave Ramsey said money only magnifies what is in you. If you are a giving person before you are wealthy, you will be a giving person with the wealth. A person who has no sexual control before the money, will use the money to spend to satisfy the lust for sex. A person that is selfish before will be selfish and greedy with the money.
1 Timothy 6:10 says: For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
We have seen from the movie industry, music/entertainment industry, and everyday people as a whole who have strayed from God because of money. God gives us all things to richly enjoy, but not at the expense of our soul.
Mark 8:36 New Living Translation: 36 And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul?
The world is the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh, and the pride of life (1 John 2:16). The earth is temporary. Our looks can change, things can wear out, our feelings can change, and pride will bring a person low. However, God’s kingdom is eternal and He never changes His character. If you don’t know God, receive Him now before it is too late. We do not know the day or the hour when the Lord will return.
Proverbs 22:1 New Living Translation: Choose a good reputation over great riches; being held in high esteem is better than silver or gold..
A person can be talented and gifted, but if their character is not good, no one wants to be around them. We have seen it to be true in the entertainment industry where companies are skeptical about backing a person, no matter how talented that person is. I like the Martin Luther King quote: “Everyone wants to be known, but the most important thing is to be known for is love.” We can go higher in God as we continue to walk in the agape love and living for the glory of God. We seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and everything else will be added (Matthew 6:33). God takes care of His children.
A beautiful soul is better than a pot of gold!
Prayer: Lord, thank you for loving me even when I don’t deserve it. I repent for loving money and the things of this world over you. God, I walk in the fruits of the spirit and remain in love. You loved me so much you gave your only Son Jesus to die for me. I seek you first and your kingdom and everything will be added to me. I live my life to glorify you. Lord, let my life show your love in order to draw people into the kingdom of God. I receive it and thank you God in advance, In Jesus name! Amen.
