Today's Gospel Truth ~ "For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after , they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called , and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses." 1 Timothy 6:10-12
In this passage of scripture we like our brother Timothy are encouraged to be very careful of how we handle money. While money is a gift from God which requisite for the necessities of life, as Ministers (those sharing the Word of God) we must be especially careful not to ever give our love to the gift but always to the Giver. As we see around our world today many Ministers get caught up in falling in love with the gift more which results in them falling out of love with the Giver. When this happens it has a huge negative effect on the Kingdom of God. While in many cases some are independent financially, it pleases God more and prove to others when we show that we rely completely on God for supplying our needs rather for us to appear as self sufficient. In the Kingdom of God we know that our truth is that God is the one who supplies all of our needs, even when we may receive a promotion, we know that it is our God who is solely behind it.
As we remain steadfast in the faith we'll happily pursue a righteous life - a life of wonder, faith, love, steadiness, and courtesy. Then we'll be better able to keep the Kingdom Mindset concerning Money which is: God is the Source of all our Money. Be obedient in giving our Money freely and liberally to God as he desires it. And be more concerned about storing up treasures in heaven than worldly riches. Are we to live a poor lifestyle because we are Kingdom Citizens? Not at all, but God want us as a people to be like the Good Samaritan who refused to pass a hurting stranger on the road. It was because of his love for God he picked up the stranger, brushed him off, and took him to a hotel to be cared for. As if that wasn't enough, the Samaritan kept his word and went back for the stranger and paid all his expenses out of his own pocket. God is so kind to us and he loves when we have, but I'm sure it makes him smile when Give as we fight the good fight of faith. AMEN
