We never talk about money but it is so important since "money makes the world go round" and THE LOVE of money is the root of all evil.Also,money is also one of the most common influencers of divorce.
Lately,I have had to consider and evaluate the role money plays in my life and how it affects my relationship with others and how it affects me.I have come to appreciate that it is very important and can influence a lot of the things we are able to do and achieve as individuals and also as Christians.
One of my friends once told me you cant do the work of God broke and its starting to make sense to me more and more.We are less influential and powerful without money and sometimes people show contempt or disrespect towards us when you cant prove that we can provide or have anything in our hand or pocket to give.
At the end of the day,it boils down to the fact that,we wont have any money without a job or if we dont expend any effort that will receive any physical monetary reward,we will never have money unless someone blesses us with it.It also comes very much down to God favouring you and giving you a job that will provide a livelihood for you and your family.
When the chance comes however,work hard,tithe,save and apply the rest properly.
That being said,if you have no money in your pocket,ask your hands why because there is no one to rely on to provide for you once you pass childhood.....The arm of flesh will fail you remember?
A little sleep,a little slumber,a little folding of the arms and your poverty will come like a robber,your need like a bandit(Prov 6:10-11).....a word to the wise is enough.
