This blog post is taken from my book Golden Nuggets, and I find it interesting that most of the parables that Jesus told had do with money or possessions.
There are more than 2,350 Bible verses that discuss money or possessions, and “giving” is mentioned 2,285 times in the Bible.
I think this is because our heart tends to follow where our money goes.
God’s financial laws are not designed to restrict or punish us.
His laws are designed to bless us, and they do bless us, when we understand and apply His principles.
You see, the Bible doesn’t say that money is the root of all evil.
An accurate translation would probably be that the Love of Money is the Root of all Sorts of Evil.
As far as I’m concerned, money is simply a tool, and like any tool, it can be used for good or it can be used for bad.
So with this in mind, I hope that you earn a lot of money as long as your goal is to use it for Glory of God and to further His Kingdom.
