Advancing God’s Kingdom with our Money – devotional – day 13

Posted in Finances with tags , , on October 31, 2012 by mikekeaton

You cannot serve God “and” Money, but you must learn to serve God “with” money.
Think about, discuss or pray about the verse that relates most to your life:
Luke 16:11-13 (Jesus said) “So if you have not been trustworthy
in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?…No
servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love
the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You
cannot serve both God and Money.”
Proverbs 10:16 The good man’s earnings advance the cause of
righteousness. The evil man squanders his on sin. TLB
Matthew 6:19-21 (Jesus said) “Do not store up for yourselves
treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves
break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven,
where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break
in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
Proverbs 16:16 How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose
understanding rather than silver!
Proverbs 17:16 Of what use is money in the hand of a fool, since he
has no desire to get wisdom?
1 Corinthians 4:2 It is required in stewards, that a man be found
faithful. KJV
The world asks: “What does a person own?” God asks, “How is the person using what they have been given?”
A Christian is one who does not have to consult his bank book to see how wealthy he really is.
