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.”

    22When the young man heard this, he went away sad, because he had great wealth.

    23Then Jesus said to his disciples, “I tell you the truth, it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. 24Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.”

    25When the disciples heard this, they were greatly astonished and asked, “Who then can be saved?”

    26Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

 With these verses I typed in money, not the love of money, but we see the love of money is the root of evil, all kinds of evil, even unto betraying the Lord.

God gives us what we need, maybe not what we want, but exactly what we need and what we don’t need is the love {greed} for money, more money, more than what we can use wisely.

Do you have a love of money, do you worship money, do you seek out ways to make more money, to the detriment of family? Do you get more money in ways not honoring to God?

The lottery, not paying taxes, fudge on taxes or charging too much in your business?

Do you agree with the prosperity preachers when they say God wants you to prosper {money-wise}?

Or do you seek out God’s wisdom and will  when you come into extra money, do you tithe or are you good stewards of your money? Do you help others out financially when you are able?

Comments please, I’d like your opinion..

Blessings on your day, Be Joyful!
