Love of Money
by Randy Chambers, 2015-06-04
Hebrews 13:5, NIV: Keep your lives free from the love of money and
be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never
will I forsake you."
Jesus said, "No man can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one, and
love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve
God and [money]" (Mt. 6:24). We like to feel secure, and we will tend to love that
which can make us feel secure. We will tend to "hold to the one" that provides
security "and despise" the one that does not. It is not a matter of what you say
you believe, but a matter of where you demonstrate that you have placed your trust.
Money fluctuates. God is stable. Money is not a sure life-long investment. God is
sure to be invested in your long life. We say that our paychecks are spent before we even
get them, and leave us wanting. "But my God shall supply all of your needs."
