Hello Readers & Followers,
Welcome to the new series on 'The Love of Money.' As Christians, are you allowed to love money?
Are you wondering how the love of money causes all kinds of evil? Let me share a few examples with you:
THE LOVE OF MONEY WILL CAUSE PEOPLE TO:
DEVIATE FROM THE FAITH
BE EXPOSED TO TEMPTATION
BECOME A SLAVE OF MONEY
TRUST IN RICHES
So, what do you think? Do you think it is possible to be a Christian and love money? I know God blessed Abraham, Solomon, and David with wealth but it is important to note that they were not chasing after money and it was not recorded that they loved money. When God makes anyone wealthy, the aim is for them to use the wealth to glorify God. Apostle Paul said to the Corinthians church that they will be made rich in every way so that they can be generous on every occasion and help others (2 Corinthians 9:11).
From reading today's post, are you going to make changes in your life when it comes to the love of money?
Recently, I was planning to introduce a paid service to something that I do since a lot of people are moving from offering free services to fee-paying services. However, the Holy Spirit told me that I must not charge for it as I am not everybody. He took the time to explain why I must not charge for this service. Amazingly, the Lord also spoke through my husband to advise me.
Are you wondering why I am sharing this with you? I would like to encourage you to be guided by God in whatever you are doing. I plead with you to avoid copying others except God has given you the go-ahead.
Yours in Christ,
Next week's post will be about the dangers of loving money in Christian ministries, I will be sharing some biblical examples of people that perished due to their love of/for money.
