Daily Devotional- Money Basics
“Money isn’t the most important thing in life, but it’s reasonably close to oxygen on the ‘gotta have it’ scale.” – Zig Ziglar
““No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and be enslaved to money.” – Matthew 6:24
““If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities. And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven? And if you are not faithful with other people’s things, why should you be trusted with things of your own?” Luke 16:10-12
There is a big misconception believers and nonbelievers have about money. Money plays an important role in our life, however it shouldn’t be more important than our relationship with God. When we understand this the next question we might ask ourselves is how come we aren’t seeing increase in our income and might be struggling to pay bills? Well that boils down to our stewardship of it and how we handle what God has entrusted us with. Those are some of the basics in understanding money in our life.
