Enslaved by Money 4.3.21

Enslaved by Money 4.3.21

But these people set an ambush for themselves;
they are trying to get themselves killed.
Such is the fate of all who are greedy for money;
it robs them of life.
Proverbs 1:18–19.

The Bible does not condemn us for having money; it warns us about money having us. When our lives revolve around saving money, making money, and working for money, we are losing our lives to gain what does not last.

God blesses us so we can bless others. He calls us to generosity. He summons us to invest our money in others and in furthering the work of God's kingdom. In other words, He calls us not to amass riches but to USE riches to honor Him.
