Interesting Facts on Money

Standard

Well, I have sort of  strayed from The musings on giving Part 2…to this…..1Ti 3:3not addicted to wine or pugnacious, but gentle, peaceable, free from the love of money.

1Ti 6:10For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. 2Ti 3:2For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, Heb 13:5 –  {Make sure that} your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have; for He Himself has said, “I WILL NEVER DESERT YOU, NOR WILL I EVER FORSAKE YOU,”

Lu 16:14Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, were listening to all these things and were scoffing at Him. Ec 5:10He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves abundance {with its} income. This too is vanity.

Ec 7:12For wisdom is protection {just as} money is protection, But the advantage of knowledge is that wisdom preserves the lives of its possessors. Ec 10:19{Men} prepare a meal for enjoyment, and wine makes life merry, and money is the answer to everything.De 23:19“You shall not charge interest to your countrymen: interest on money, food, {or} anything that may be loaned at interest.

Mt 26:15and said, “What are you willing to give me to betray Him to you?” And they weighed out thirty pieces of silver to him.

From Luke 20:24 “Show Me a denarius. Whose likeness and inscription does it have?” They said, “Caesar’s.” 25 And He said to them, “Then render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” 26 And they were unable to catch Him in a saying in the presence of the people; and being amazed at His answer, they became silent.

The Rich Young Man

    16Now a man came up to Jesus and asked, “Teacher, what good thing must I do to get eternal life?”

    17“Why do you ask me about what is good?” Jesus replied. “There is only One who is good. If you want to enter life, obey the commandments.”

    18“Which ones?” the man inquired.

   Jesus replied, ” ‘Do not murder, do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not give false testimony, 19honor your father and mother,’ and ‘love your neighbor as yourself.'”

    20“All these I have kept,” the young man said. “What do I still lack?”

    21Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”
