Money and God! Is Money the Root of all Evil?? (Understanding Financial and Spiritual Wealth)
Money and God (Is money the root of all evil?)
Is Money the root of all evil??
Is money the root of all evil?? We connect everything with money… (social status, glory, fame, prestige, recognition, popularity, admiration, bills expenses, the perfect life… etc), we assume that money is the most essential thing in our lives.
We get starstruck by it! We think that this is all there is in life….that money will give us success, people’s attention and praise.
How far are we from the truth though!?
Money is not the root of all evil. It becomes evil when when money becomes as a self purpose. Money is only a tool that can do many good things.
Raise a family
Buy a house
Pay for your education
Give to the poor
Open up a business you love which will also give jobs and help the local economy
Donate to charitable organizations around the world
Be financially free and spend more time with our loved ones or do the things we really love
Pray and spend more time with God
So many good things you can do and in so many ways to make a difference…
Money is not our God. It is given to us by God Himself. It is a mere positive side effect when we enrich ourselves spiritually!
But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Money and Prosperity Gospel:
I do not support Prosperity Gospel.
Prosperity Gospel limits itself only on the good stuff in the Bible that are lovey-dovey to people’s ears. And that takes you away from God’s true plan.
The word of God is not convenience, if it were so, then we might as well go to the supermarket and buy groceries.
Leave bad things behind:
When we get close to God’s word, our environment starts changing. As we build our spiritual wealth it will eventually reflect our outer reality. There is a connection between our thoughts, feelings, beliefs with the outer reality.
Negative things, wrong people, toxic relationships, bad habits, poverty leave our lives. It hurts to leave some things that we were attached to behind us, but in the future you will look back and you will realize that your separation from these bad situations was a blessing in disguise.
God sheds the bad things from your life in order to bring better things, new doors, bigger opportunities and better people blessed by God will start coming into your life such as better and honest people, more meaningful relationships, deeper wisdom about life and your self.
God and Financial Wealth:
Be financially smart but don’t stress about money, don’t get frustrated when you missed your financial goals, or when you loose money, or pay too many bills.
Let go of your losses, don’t focus on lack, the more you focus on the word of God the more financial blessings you will get.
Do not use the word of God in vain to your personal advantage only but use it to create a win win situation by understanding the other person’s needs and wants as well.
Getting a financial education and also becoming spiritually rich is wise but don’t get attached to money, don’t get frustrated when your money is tight and don’t let your ego rise up when you gain money. Its not a priority but merely a positive side effect. So maintain your self discipline which only takes programming and training your mindset.
Focus on high values such as the Word of God (knowing God, know thyself, studying the scriptures, praying, etc) and love our fellow people (love thy neighbour). These two values are the most important in order for God to bless all the other aspects of your life.
When focusing too much on money, we loose sight of all that is important around us, God, relationships, family, friends, all high values go down the drain. And soon enough we loose both: our values and then our money, we enter a spiritual crisis which will soon lead into a financial crisis.
Have an abundance mindset but be detached from money cause you wont be taking it with you when you die! Money is not for us but its about doing all the good things in society (helping others, creating a positive impact in the world).
How to get spiritual wealth:
We need to be close to Him, all we need to do is to develop our spiritual wealth through
Not judging others but pray for them to come into repentance,
When someone wrongs us, we can distance ourselves from them but still bless them, pray for them, show them mercy.
Studying the Bible
Giving value to others
Do acts of kindness
All these things will help us gain divine wisdom and inner wealth thus reflecting our outer wealth including our financial wealth.
Focus on the things that matter and they will open the flow of the abundance of God!
