"For the love of money is the root of all sorts of evils. By coveting it, some have strayed from the faith and will have caused many troubles"(1 Timothy 6 NIV)
COMPLEMENTARY passage: 1 Timothy 6:7-10; Ecclesiastes 5:8-20; Psalm 128:1-3
God has promised to teach us and guide us by his word, therefore, in it we find the universal and eternal principles that lead us to a straight life and much prosperity. These principles contain precious teachings that will point us the right path to be followed in the handling of all our areas, becoming excellent stewards of all the resources that God has given us, bringing peace, well-being and happiness, that we had not imagined. Among these truths are those that instruct us on how manage money wisely.
The financial principles through the Bible, always had the purpose of God save our hearts of wrong attitudes so common that occur against this aspect of life. God, who knows what is best for us, to protect us from many headaches and heartaches. His teachings then represent the love and wisdom of a father to his children who hear him and rely on him; in truth God wants to bless us and see us happy, prosper us, meet our needs, in such a way that it is nothing, missing us also to our children and our family; and this tells us the true path through which we can find the blessing and prosperity: "obedience to its principles".
In none of the parables that Christ used to teach about the riches or that has to do with money, speaking of being bad, warns is that we keep the heart of the love of money, greed, selfishness, greed and pride; because those are the attitudes that diverted to the man of God's blessing. "And he said to them: take heed, and beware of all covetousness;" because the man's life does not consist in the abundance of goods which owns"(Luke 12:15)
Jesus clarifies that the good life or happiness, is not about having money or material things. What God wants is to enjoy a full and balanced life. This what we understand by the Holy Spirit, when we allow you to take control of our lives, who also leads us to understand his word by giving us the wisdom to decide the best. Every day our prayer is: "does not give me poverty or wealth; keep I needed bread"(Proverbs 30:8b)
WE TALK WITH GOD
"Lord, thank you for giving us this new day. You are the owner of all things, and has arranged in front of our eyes the blessing and the curse as says it your Word; why today we ask that you keep our hearts so that they do not lean to greed or avarice, but that on the contrary, they tilt it to understand your principles and place them for work, as in obey your Word is the secret of prosperity." Amen.
