“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.” Matthew 6:24 (NLT)
God isn’t against you having money. He’s against money having you. He’s against you making it your priority and putting your trust in it instead of in Him. Why is this? To simply put- God knows money makes a lousy god. Its power is limited. It will only buy so much. It will only go so far.
If you need healing from an incurable disease, money won’t help you at all. For all the money Steve Jobs had, the former CEO of Apple couldn’t save himself from pancreatic cancer. There have also been stories of wealthy celebrities who died of depression. If your family is falling apart, money won’t mend it. But if you’ll seek God first, His prosperity will reach into every area of your life.
God is so generous that He desires you to have the best on this earth, just as you desire the best for your children. His plan is for you to have all of your needs met according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Get in on that plan by keeping your priorities straight. Seek Him first and His righteousness.
Make pleasing God your top priority. Set your eyes on Him above all else and every other thing you crave for will be given to you.
