Cease from your consideration of it.
When you set your eyes on it,
it is gone.
For wealth certainly makes itself wings,
Like an eagle that flies toward
the heavens." Proverbs 23:4-5
"But those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a snare and many foolish and harmful desires which plunge men into ruin and destruction." 1 Timothy 6:9
"But flee from these things (the desire to be rich), you (child) of God; and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance and gentleness." 1 Timothy 6:11
We need to just stay teachable in all things, and especially in the area of money. Mammon is the one god Jesus warned us about. Wanting to be rich (which so many of us dream about...) is in itself a self-deception. I have myself thought, "If I win a million dollars I'll do such and such for God."
That kind of thought keeps us from serving others right now for God.
God is Our Provider period. We are to NEVER WORRY about finances. We are to Depend on Him fully.
If He has called us to something, He will provide for that something.
Giving to God in order to get from Him is not giving at all.
We are to give generously -- that is the only rule for giving in the New Testament. We reap what we sow.
Whatever we grasp tightly we will lose. OR, it will control us.
Does money or lack of money or abundance of money control you? Money is just a tool. Money is just a tool. It isn't a gateway to the good life. The good life is found in God and God alone.
