When it comes to Love of Money issue and our motives, we learn that money is not really the big issue. Money itself is a medium of exchange. So it is not an issue. The issues are our hearts, and mindsets about money. It’s how we view it and how we came to learn about it. The issue is when we love money so much to make it a master that governs our lives. So money doesn’t change our characters, it reveals them.
We shouldn’t be chasing money; instead we should concentrate more on doing what we presume GOD has called us to do and accomplish our purposes which are to give HIM glory in every area of our lives. Making money and becoming wealth shouldn’t be our main focus. The Bible says “The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, without painful toil for it.”
GOD wants us to put HIM first priority in everything about our lives and HE wants to get involved in every area of our lives. When our lives align with GOD’s Will for our lives, we shouldn’t be toiling for the things we need and want.
As Christians we need to let the HOLY SPIRIT guide us. We have learned that GOD takes care of HIS people. And we receive GOD’s provision and supply by faith. Instead of being anxious, we need to trust HIM, moment by moment, and as we do so by faith, HE will supply and provide us with what we need.
The LORD JESUS said, we cannot Serve two masters at the same time. You cannot serve GOD and serve money at the same time. You will love one and hate the other. If GOD wants to give us money, HE can do it anyway HE wants to bring it to us in which ever means without us bowing down to money. We are the ones who have to make a choice to love, trust, and serve GOD and bow down to GOD only and making HIM our first priority in life as our Creator, Provider, and Master of our lives, or to serve and love money and bow down to money. We have to make a choice to live lives that glorify GOD. We have to make a choice that our mindsets and actions always align with GOD’s Will for our lives, and not really opposing GOD and HIS Principles and Instructions.
