Your Jesus Message of the Day: Jesus Has a Message for You, and it Stems from The Root of All Evil

Timothy 6:10

For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.

Those who choose to walk away from my love and into the arms of the harm that money offers will seek no rest or reprise. There is much to gain from admiring the view from what you have already, that you cannot better yourself in the presence of coins. If you seek more money, you seek more ways to destroy what you have built, for what you have built is good enough.

Proverbs 13:11

Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it.

The quickening of wealth will only signal the quickening of loss. Use your skill and talent to build more skill and more talent. If you help others and find ways to give back, then the money you earn will not have been in vain. See yourself not dwindling but recognize the power in replenishing the pockets of others.

The Bible will teach you about rich versus poor. It will guide you to the belief that I came from poor, and my earnings have been offered to those who need it more than I. There is no beauty in ruling one class of man over another, just the continuing need for division. Choose not to be a slave to those with money and create your own riches that you can offer to those in dire need.

Jesus and Money

The rich rules over the poor, and the borrower is the slave of the lender (Proverbs 22:7). It is in this verse you will see yourself needing to pay back, or forever being in the debt of those who gave you the money. If it is earned in honesty, it is worth celebrating. If you cannot love how money comes your way, you must give up the need to keep seeking it.

A good name is to be chosen rather than great riches, and favor is better than silver or gold (Proverbs 22:1). A poor man can be of better value than that of the richest in the land. It is in your name that comes your value, not in what you possess. Those who refuse to believe that are going to rust under the metal of the coins in their hand.

What Jesus Does for You

Facing Fear of Money Alone

Do not fear lack of money but fear the reason why you ask for so much. What can you do if you hold a hundred gold coins, but can only spend ten? If you learn to hoard your riches, you will teach others that giving is not permissible. Do not be alone in what you desire and reach out to those who see you entirely.

Learning The Value of Money

Money has only the value to please those who receive it in kindness. If you earn it honestly, it can be handed to the poor to help them in their time of need. There is great value in giving without the need or desire for it to be returned. Allow your good faith to extend to the hands of the needy and ask of nothing from them.

Allowing Money to Strengthen You

Money is what can make us weak. If too many cross our path, it becomes too full to keep walking. That is why it is vital to see how giving it to others will help them as well as you. Be the receiver of their thanks, as they are the receiver of your fortune. Money has value, if value reaches those who need salvation. A meal for a child comes from a coin, yet the coin cannot be taken advantage of. Keep it safe, and keep it valued and stored for times you can make changes.

Stay In Love, Stay in Money

The love of money is the root of all evil. To possess it and keep it, is to keep it unsafe. Cherish not what you have, but what you can do with it. That is where love is, that is where you hold your power, and that is where you will find me. In prayer, I will give you the love you need to share your worth and create worth in those who have none.

Ecclesiastes 7:12

Wisdom is a shelter as money is a shelter, but the advantage of knowledge is this: Wisdom preserves those who have it.

“Let all you do be carried with and in love.”
