Why do people think about money? (GC32)
- church SteemChurch
Memo: 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. [1 Timothy 6:10 NIV]
All human beings must believe in God's faith above all things, so that neither money nor evil leads us astray. you always have to keep looking for help from our lord jesus christ.
People are obsessed with money because they are far from our lord jesus christ, and they do not share goodness in their hearts.
Without Christ, the only way to feel important and happy is through status. And for status you generally need money.
Those living in the spirit of Christ, are not concerned with status. We feel important because we know we are loved by Christ - so we can focus on other things - like family and freedom.
Those without the substance which is Christ has no real hope, the next thing to lay hold on is mammon, they glory in their shame, in the works of their hands.
But for the saints, the lord is our banner, our shield and fortress.
what we need shall be supplied by God, including money as we need them.
Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample. (For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ: Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.) For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself. Philippians 3:17-21 (KJV)
