The Money

You cannot serve both God and money.

Jesus devoted a substantial section of His Sermon on the Mount to money and our fondness for it. He taught us to pray not for an accumulation of riches but for our daily bread. He warned against storing up treasures on earth and pointed to the birds and flowers as evidence that God cares deeply about His creation. Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, Jesus said. And all these things will be given to you as well.

Money matters. But money shouldn’t rule our decision-making process. Tough times and big decisions are opportunities to grow our faith in new ways. Our heavenly Father cares for us.

Never confuse temptation with opportunity.
