The Bible says a lot about money, wealth and riches. Jesus said, “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. ” (Mark 10:25). Jesus, already knows the human heart better than anyone . So many times, rich people make wealth their number one priority instead of God. They spend most of their time making wealth, and spending it. Money becomes their idol. God said in his commandment that their should be no other Gods before him and hey break that by idealizing money.
We don’t have enough faith to depend on God and know that he will gives us our desires of our hearts if we Just seek him and give him our all. Our culture wants to buy the new cars, new music players, new computers, new furniture, So we’ are caught somewhere in between, not poor but far from rich. We see the importance that money brings to us. We have even seen rich people get treated with respect and we want a piece of that for ourselves. We have God, but we want more.
Just like Adam and Eve, we desire to be bigger and better than we are. Satan lied to them then, and he’s still lying to us today. We know we can’t but certain things and we know that we can’t afford vacations, UT the devil tells us we can and then we have to pay the consequences in the long run. As long as we have Jesus we are rich. We don’t need all that big stuff. God knows what we need and what we don’t need. There was this song; it was called “The world didn’t give and the world can’t take it away’.
