Better Thoughts Concerning Money
Money. Its something worth discussing because we all need it in order to get by in this life. The Bible does teach that money answers all things. So, God knows that money is a necessary part of life. There are those who believe that God is opposed to His people prospering, especially financially. They claim that the Bible teaches that money is the root of all evil. However, these people are mistaken. The Sacred Scriptures actually say, "the love of money is the root of all evil." Wealth, in itself, is the creation of Almighty God. He made it for His people. He is not against His people having riches, as long as the riches are not the controlling factor in our lives. The Bible declares that it is the Will of God that we prosper. He even tells us how to experience prosperity in the first Psalm. He promised those of us who meditate in His Word, day and night, that He will cause whatsoever we do to prosper. Granted that real Bible prosperity is much more than material things, we must not deny the fact that material things are included in His Divine promises for us.
