We need money to operate in this world’s system.
And because we need lots of it in order to meet our needs and the needs of our family, if we’re not careful, it’s easy to begin chasing money instead of chasing God. When our priorities get out of whack and we put money before God, the Bible says that it will cause us to wander from the faith, and pierce ourselves with many griefs (1 Timothy 6:10 NIV).
We have to put money in its proper place. It is not a god for us to worship. Money is simply a tool for us to use on this planet—that’s all. We worship God because we know He is our source always. When you realize God is your source, then you don’t chase after money.
You live knowing that no matter what happens in the economy, or with your job situation, or with your investments, God can and will always open another opportunity for you that will meet your needs. He can open doors of increase for you that no man can shut!
The Take Away
Don’t put money before God. God is your Father, and He will always provide for you. Money is just a tool. Chasing after money will only result in disappointment. Chasing after God will result in blessing and increase.
