HOW IMPORTANT IS MONEY?
Money is life’s “support system,” but, too small an object to run a man’s life. That was why God declared, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you”. He further noted, “Ye cannot serve God and mammon”. This is a principle of life.
Thus, faith in God comes first. It is also what makes the faith for everything else possible. God knows what is best for us, and “…no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly”
Unfortunately, for money, men will sell their souls, women their bodies, and everyone is tempted to lose their virtue. Our Lord Jesus Christ was betrayed because of love of money. Ananias and Sapphira lied about their money through their fear of failure. In his hatred of the Gospel, Demetrius caused a rebellion against the Apostle Paul because of the loss of his revenue derived from the worship of the goddess, Diana. Paul’s ship was wrecked because of the greed of its owners, and only Paul’s intercession saved the crew from death. Jezebel hated Elijah and tried to kill him because of the loss of revenue which came about through the destruction of her prophets and their ministries.
It is common knowledge that most men spend the majority of their time on earth thinking about money. Even in divorce, money and children are the greatest causes of litigation. Governments fall into corruption by money’s misuse. People perish from lack: not having adequate money for food and life sustainability. Families are destroyed from the stress of having too much money, and/or not having enough. Men worship more when money seems not to be sufficient. But, it should not be so!
“Blessed is the man…(whose) delight is in the law of the Lord…Whatever he does prospers”, The Psalmist wrote. Therefore, in the words of Edwin Louis Cole, as documented in his best-selling book, “Communication, Sex and Money…Overcoming The Three Common Challenges In Relationship”, “Prosperity is the natural, sequentially-ordered result of righteousness in life. Wherever there is righteousness, there is prosperity. It is a principle of life that is true whether in money or marriage. A right relationship produces prosperity”
The passionate pursuit of money alone, without vision, makes mockery of men. The proper use of money will always culminate in supernatural prosperity. Wise investments lead to financial security, stability and total freedom. But, you need a proper understanding of what money is really all about…
WHAT IS MONEY ALL ABOUT?
Hear me; the pursuit of money makes mockery of men; but, the passionate pursuit of God’s kingdom advancement makes super-successes of men.
Unfortunately, many struggle to make money in futility because they lack adequate insight on the subject of money. They see money as the coloured paper or the metallic coin. But money is beyond that!
Money Is Simply A Medium Of Exchange For Goods And Services
Thus, if you are not exchanging something of value, you are not permitted to make money. Until something goes out of you, money cannot flow to you. There is no mystery about money.
Money Answers All Things
Money Is A Defense
It keeps one from the harassment of life. No matter how spiritual you are, you cannot stay without paying your required rent (Assuming you live in a rented apartment).
Money Gives You Voice
It gives voice to wisdom. Without money, your philosophy loses weight and becomes unacceptable. “Onye na-enweghi ego amaghi right ya”, an Igbo parlance goes (Meaning: “He who has no money does not know his right”).
Have you not read the story as was documented in the Holy Book (The Bible)?
There was a little city, and few men within it. And there came a great king against it, and besieged it and built great bulwarks against it: Now, there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet, no man remembered that same poor man. Then said I wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless, the poor man’s wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.
My Financial Mentor, Bishop David Oyedepo once said,
No matter the wisdom the poor man possesses, no one considers him for an election as the President of a nation. Money gives voice to the gospel. Without money, the gospel cannot be spread all over the world. It is the wheel upon which this end time wisdom of God will ride…
The Scripture recorded that money has wings and flies towards Heaven. Money acquired outside God will soon diminish. It does not last. ‘‘Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished, but he that gathered by labor shall increase.” Little wonder why the Bible posited that the blessings of God make rich and do not add sorrow.
Somebody said it right, “Money is always asking, ‘What will you give in exchange for me?’” Until values are exchanged, money does not gravitate. May your eyes of understanding be opened to this mystery! You must give something of equivalent value to have the kind of money you desire.
Money In The Hands Of A Wise Man Generates More Prosperity…
But money in the hands of a foolish one is a weapon for mass destruction
This is because, if enough money is in the hands of a good man, he does good things with it. But, when the evil ones are in possession of money, money is used to do evil.
Money Can Take Any Form
It gets born again when it enters the hands of a Christian but becomes a “Ritualist” when it enters the hands of a Ritualist. Money in the hands of a sinner makes it sinful. Think about this! Remember, it is the same money.
Money Is Simply An Idea, A good, Or Service
This is because the process of making money starts when an idea is conceived, believed, and nurtured. Ideas generate money! Thus, when you lack ideas, you lack money. Thoughts are things, someone rightly said.
I like the title of Napoleon Hill’s book, “Think and Grow Rich” Until you think, you cannot grow rich. Thinking is the secret of the rich. In fact, the hard work of the rich is thinking. They only use others lawfully, through the power of leverage, to achieve their targeted results.
John Hayes said, “Nobody has a money problem but an ideas problem!”
Nobody gives money freely, except it is a miracle. Even miracles do not just happen. Miracles also obey the law of cause and effect. Thus, when miracles happen, always remember that somebody paid the price spiritually, emotionally or otherwise. Miracles are not accidental occurrences.
Manna never failed from heaven until there was a cry (desire) for it. Whatever you want, by divine creation, they are already made available, but you must desire it and consequently take steps to bring it into manifestation.
As powerful as God is, God did not erect any building. He only laid the foundation of the world and created man to become a co-creator, replicating Heaven on earth. But, how many of us are doing this?
A wise one supported this statement, when he wrote:
… There was also a time when people could not cross the ocean, although the materials for ships were all around them… Materials to make planes to fly the skies and rockets to reach outer space were here in abundance.
Electricity was in the air and ways to discover and harness it lay in the minds of men…
Money Cheaply Answers To Giving Not Saving
Money does not want us to mess it up. It is responsible. It does not want us to devalue it. Thus, if you are not careful with money, it flies away into the hands of those who value it and manages it well. Mismanagement of money retards the smooth flow of money to one. But, money cheaply gravitates to anyone who knows how to use it.
Let me shock you now with this mystery I discovered from one of John Hayes’s books which supported the fact that success is not money. Thus, if you think that success is money consider these facts of life:
Money can buy you a palace of breathe taking, a splendor, but money cannot buy you the love and respect of the people who live in it….Money can buy you the finest physician in an hour of sickness, but money cannot buy the God given gift of health.
Money can buy you a bed of solid gold, but cannot buy you one minute of rest or inner peace. Money will attract legion of people to you, but money cannot buy you the treasure of one true friend. Money can buy a church pew with your name engraved on it in gold script, but will not buy you a ticket to heaven or a pure heart.
MONEY ANSWERETH ALL THINGS BUT MONEY IS NOT EVERYTHING
With the money you can buy virtually all things. But there are things on earth which money cannot buy. Money can get you a beautiful house but money cannot buy you a peaceful home. Little wonder why some couples in marriages have wrecked their marriage because of the wrong notion that what their partner needed was money alone, without minding other non-monetary factors responsible for a sustainable relationship.
Money can attract a person to you but it takes something beyond money to keep the person around you, for a lasting relationship. Money can attract a customer to you but money might not sustain the customer. Money can buy you a wonderful family bed but money might not make you to sleep comfortably on it. Little wonder why some seeming millionaires who acquired money through the wrong ways have always lacked sleep at nights.
MONEY, IN ITSELF, IS NEITHER GOOD NOR BAD. MONEY IS NEUTRAL
Money in the hands of a good man does well. When money enters the hands of a politician, it begins to speak the political language and solve political problems.
Money in the hands of the wicked destroys many and puts many to their untimely deaths.
The world today seems to be in a state of chaos and confusion because abundant money is still in the hands of the wrong people. Unfortunately, most people who are acclaimed the richest still hold money to themselves without focusing on enriching others to assist in the fight for a global peace and prosperity.
Hear me: Teaching a man how to fish sometimes might not be the solution to his immediate challenge(s). How can you be teaching me how to manufacture food when I need just a plate of food with which to ‘Hold my body, spirit, and soul together’ at the moment, so as to concentrate? This is an error!
I believe that while people are being taught how to fish, they should at least be given some fishes for their immediate gratification. This will skyrocket their concentration level and produce more tangible result than teaching them to fish in an empty stomach.
Even among organizations today, this is sad to say, many top rated entrepreneurs and acclaimed leaders still starve their employed workers in the guise of lifting up their faith. What non-sense!
Why would a person work for you and you end up using him or her, collecting the whole money he/she made for you and giving him/her peanut?This decision is barbaric and should be revisited!
Money should be put to the right use to become the right solution. Money cannot be held guilty at the last day! Money is innocent! It is the one who used it that will either be guilty or not! Remember, you shall give account of all you do on earth. Money is neutral!
MONEY IS AN ENERGY TOOL
Money gives motion to action. Without money, vision might not be accomplished. Without money, targets might not be reached.
Money is both a seed and fruit. As a seed, you need to sow money to reap a harvest. Money is the energy that moves stagnation to accomplishments. It is an energy tool!
MONEY CAN BE USED TO BUILD OR TO DESTROY
Our lives, our relationships, and our happiness improve when we have enough money.
MONEY PROBABLY EARNED AND COMBINED WITH FINANCIAL INTELLIGENCE MAKES THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE
Money in the hands of a foolish man becomes foolish. However, Money becomes real money when its acquisition is backed up with the requisite intelligence for its management and sustenance.
BECOMING A MILLIONAIRE IS NOT A BIG DEAL; IT IS EASY
Becoming rich is easy; only that people are not ready to pay the price to obtain the prize. Learn how to be rich, do what the rich do, and have what the rich have! It is that simple! Just learn, do, and have!
“MONEY WON’T MAKE YOU RICH!” noted Sunday Adelaja in one of his books
It has never made anyone rich. It is only what money can buy that makes rich in reality. Think about this!
OUR WORLD CAN OVERCOME WORLD POVERTY IF WE HAVE THE HEART TO DO SO
It takes guts to overcome poverty. God has subdued the land for us but there are many adversaries. We need to war against them to possess our land. Remember, the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof.
Nevertheless, the major challenge many have today is the challenge of mismanagement of God’s resources on earth, which includes money.
