The Blessings & Curses of Money!

Money can be a channel to transport blessings and it can be a trap to imprison you. There is absolutely nothing wrong with money and having great wealth. In fact God intended man to live in luxury when He created the earth.

Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and he adds no sorrow with it.

God desires every soul that enters this earth to taste wealth and to enjoy it too! Solomon was anointed and extremely dear to God as He filled Solomon with wisdom beyond this world even to this generation! With all the wisdom, He adorned Solomon in great wealth. God desires you to be wealthy, healthy, dress exceptionally well, to eat the finest and to enjoy your life to the fullest. What God warns against is when you get caught up in the chase for wealth and riches and you become an addict!

Hebrews 13:5 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”

Money can be a curse  when it becomes your “air”! There is absolutely nothing wrong with having money, spending money and giving away money but when you become attach to money, it transforms itself into your god and that is a HUGE problem with God! God instructs that you must be content with what He has given you which basically instructs you to be satisfied with everything you have within your life. The issue most persons have today is covetousness – they see someone living a particular life and become envious not knowing how they attain their wealth and so they take their destinies within their hands where they basically sell their souls for riches and wealth. But the scriptures asked what good it does for man to gain the world and lose their soul. Satan will and can give you wealth but  he will kill you spiritually and physically with that wealth!
Be content with what you have been given and when God sees how you grateful you are with little, He will bless you with great wealth. If He has blessed you with great wealth, be grateful and don’t hesitate to share it!
