Summary: MONEY IS NECESSARY BUT IT CAN NOT MAKE YOU HAPPY

  Study Tools

MONEY IN ITSELF IS NOT BAD, WHAT MATTER IS HOW WE USE MONEY. IT IS LIKE THE INTERNET, THE INTERNET IS NOT, BUT WHAT MATTERS IS HOW YOU USE THE INTERNET. 1 TIMOTHY 6:!0 DECLARES THAT THE LOVE OF MONEY IS A ROOT OF ALL EVIL. GOD IS NOT AGAINTS YOU HAVING MONEY, HE IS AGAINTS YOU WORSHIPPING MONEY. GOD IS MY SOURCE, NOT MONEY. MONEY OUGHT TO BE MY STEWARD, NOT MY BOSS. I AM NOT A SLAVE OF MONEY, BUT MONEY IS A MEANS TO ACCOMPLISH GOALS. YES, WE HAVE TO WORK AND BE RESPONSIBLE, BUT GOD DOES NOT WANT US INTERNALLY WORRIED ABOUT MATERIAL THINGS. THE GREAT STRUGGLE OF THE AGES IS WHETHER WE ARE GOING TO WORSHIP THE MATERIAL OR THE INVISIBLE GOD. MONEY IS A SYMBOLIC VALUE OF MATERIAL WORTH. YET, REMEMBER THAT JESUS SAID THAT THERE IS THE REAL RICHES (THE SPIRITUAL ONES). IF GOD MAKE US RICH AND YOU HAVE WORKED HARD TO BE RICH IS FOR YOU TO HELP OTHERS, TO BE GENEROUS AND TO EXPAND THE GOSPEL ON EARTH. MONEY IN ITSELF IS NOT BAD. THE WORLD THINKS THAT MONEY IS POWER, YET THEY DON'T REALIZE THAT PRAYER IS THE TRUE POWER. MONEY IS INSECURE, YOU CAN HAVE IT TODAY AND TOMORROW IS GONE! LET GOD BE YOUR SECURITY AND YOUR ONLY SOURCE! I SEE CHRISTIAN GET SO EXCITED WHEN YOU TELL THEM ABOUT MONEY! BUT WHEN YOU TELL THEM ABOUT SPIRITUAL RICHES, THEY ARE SO INDIFFERENT! BELOVED, HAPPINESS IS NOT FOUND IS HAVING A LOT OF MONEY. ASK MOST OF THOSE STARS AND ACTORS, THEY SMILE IN FRONT OF THE CAMERA, BUT BEHIND THE CURTAINS THEY ARE UNHAPPY, DEPRESSED, SUICIDAL, SAD, LONELY, ANGRY, FRUSTRATED, PURPOSELESS, AND ADDICTED. MONEY MAKES YOU FAMOUS AND GIVES YOU MANY PLEASURE, BUT IT CAN NOT GIVE YOU HAPPINESS, NOR PEACE NOR JOY, NOR PURPOSE. BELOVED, HAPPINESS IS NOT FOUND IN THE GOD MAMMON (MONEY), BUT IN HIM WHO IS INFINITE WEALTH, JESUS. THE BIBLES SAYS THAT THE LOVE OF MONEY IS BAD. IT DOES NOT SAY THAT MONEY IS BAD. BELOVED, THE EARTH IS THE LORD'S AND ALL THAT IS IN IT. THOSE ARE CREATIVE RIGHTS, THAT MONEY THAT YOU HAVE IS NOT YOURS, YOU ARE JUST A STEWARD. ALL IS GOD'S! THUS, GOD IS YOUR SOURCE SINCE HE CAN MAKE MONEY OUT OF STONES AND GIVE GOLD COINS OUT OF A FISH! BELOVED, THE REAL WEALTH IS CHRIST! GIVE HIM YOUR WHOLE HEART! DON'T BE ATTACH TO MONEY, FOR IT IS INSECURE! SEE SOLOMON, ONE OF THE RICHEST MAN ON EARTH, HE HAD EVERYTHING, YET AFTER HE TASTED ALL, HE CAME TO THIS CONCLUSION: VANITY OF VANITY ALL IS WIND! WITHOUT GOD ALL IS EMPTINESS. BELOVED, PURSUE GOD AS YOU HAPPINESS, NOT MONEY. SOME YOUNG PEOPLE ARE AMBITIOUS FOR MONEY. THEY WANT QUICK MONEY AND ALSO QUICK DEATH! IT IS BETTER TO WORK HARD AND RESPONSIBLY TO EARN MONEY. THE REALITY IS THAT MONEY HAS MADE NOBODY HAPPY! FOR MAN'S HAPPINESS DOES NOT CONSISTS ON HOW MUCH MATERIAL POSSESION HE HAS, BUT IN A RIGHT RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD, PEACE AND HAPPINESS IN THE HOLY SPIRIT. AMEN.
