Is money the Answer?

Many people believe that money is the key to life.

From the time that we are born many are told that this should be their goal in life.

Perform well in school so that you can obtain a job so that you can get wealth.

Work hard so that you can be promoted to a higher position and increase in wealth.

Get wealth and you will get everything else, wife, children, houses, cars, boats, respect, power, the list goes on and on.

Everywhere we turn it is projected that obtaining money is what life is all about.

But money is not the key to life, for those who trust that it is are foolish.

Money cannot save you from death, it will not make you a better person, will not protect you from disease or disaster, will not stop your children from being hooked on drugs or alcohol, and will not stop your plane from being high jacked by terrorist.

It is written in the book of 1st Timothy chapter 6 verse 17, “ Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God.”

Money cannot save you from death for if it could we would still see people like Elvis Presley, Michael Jackson, Johnny Carson, Walter Payton, Princess Diana living today for they were very wealth.

But the truth is that only Jesus can save you from death, for it is written, “ Take heed and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consist not in the abundance of the things which he possesses.” Luke 12:15

Jesus constantly warns us not to chase after money, he tells a parable of a rich man who had done very well is business and this man spent most of his life to obtain his goal. So he had expanded his storage facilities to store his great wealth, looking to retire and live a wonderful worldly life, but when he was ready to do this God called him home, his life was over before he could spent it. Luke 12: 16-20

Another story Jesus tells us is the story of a rich man and a poor who both passed away.

Jesus says that the poor man was carried away by angels to paradise, but the rich man was buried and ended up in hell. Luke 16:22-23

As we can see that money does not stop us from dying!

Jesus says, “ No servant can serve to masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon (wealth). Luke 16:13

We were not put here on earth to chase after money for it is written, “ Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much better than they (the birds)?” Matthew 6:26

And again Jesus tells us, “ Therefore take no thought, saying, what shall we eat? Or what shall we drink? Or, wherewithal shall we be clothed?

For after all these things do the Gentiles (people who know not God) seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you have need of all these things.

But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

Take therefore no thought for tomorrow for tomorrow shall take thought for the things of itself.” Matthew 6:31-34

People that do not truly know God are those who are overly concern about money.

You cannot serve in the Army of Jesus and chase money for it is written, “ No man that warreth (goes to war for God) entangles himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who has chosen him to be a soldier.” 2nd Timothy 2:4

Matthew 6:19-21 Jesus says

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust do corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:

But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust do corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”

But there are many of you that think that you can do both, think that your giving of your abundance will buy your way to heaven.

You are sadly mistaken! Jesus takes the time to tell us of a little old lady that gave more than many men that were rich. He tells us how she put only 2 small coins into the collection plate and God saw it to be worth more than the abundant amount that the money chasers put in. Mark 12:41-44

You cannot do both, chase money and serve God.

For it is written in the book of 1st Timothy 6: 6-10, “ godliness with contentment is great gain.

For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.

And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.

But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

Is money the answer?

No! Jesus is the answer.

God bless you and may He grant you wisdom.

Until next time
