You know, I think we are so entrenched with worldly thought toward money and how to manage it that we have no idea how far God needs to bring us to get His attitude with it. I read the above verse and that led me to think of Matthew 6:19-20
"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in and steal."
Jesus tells us not to get a bunch of stuff on earth. You could say that is a command really. He isn't against stuff. He is against us getting attached to it, and I think He knows our weakness. If we start getting a lot of stuff here on earth it is easy for our flesh to get attached to it.
If God blesses us financially and with nice things they are to glorify HIm in some way -- maybe through sharing? maybe through giving? Maybe through ministry?
If you go farther in that chapter Jesus cautions us about what will happen if we start seeing our treasure is on earth. He says this:
"if your eye is bad, your whole body will be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is the darkness!" Matthew 6:23
When we start getting attached to earthly things, they fill our lives, we find contentment in them in that they are our treasures and not what is in heaven, the light of Christ dims in us. We lose our ability to shine for Him. It is a temporary thing but could do a lot of damage. Sometimes when things need light and they don't have it for a long time all life is sucked out of them and there is no revival possible.
This is some heavy stuff to think about....
