Money speaks to many. If money did speak, actually it would say: “I am the root of all evil; I violate all the ten commandments in giving myself too freely. For me men have fought, sinned, bled and died, cried, laboured, and agonized! For me men have betrayed one another, merchants have sold their souls; the Sabbath day has been desecrated- employees have been compelled to work for me on Sundays- thus violating God’s laws.”
“For me (money) woman have sold their virtue, youth have dissipated themselves, and old men have become covetous misers. For me souls have been lost, crimes committed, theft, murder, falsehood, and every kindred of evil. For me souls have forgotten that Christ said: What shall it profit a man if he gain the whole world and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? Merchants have become greedy, covetous (which is idolatry) and have even WORSHIPPED ME instead of the living God!”
“For me (money), fraudulent deals have been transacted, gambling has flourished, laws violated, God’s name dishonoured, and our youth sent on the way to endless hell!”
“I, money, can be used for good purposes, often I have helped the widow, the orphan, the church, the welfare institutions, and needy hospitals- but usually the sinners misuse me as he does everything else. It takes a Christian and a righteous man or woman to use me properly- for the glory of God”
“For me, money, men’s souls have become warped, selfish and sinful, until God looks down with displeasure and says “Thou shalt not Covet.” Much hardship could be alleviated in the world if those who possess much of me would only use me rightly. True, as a medium of exchange, I am necessary, but the MISUSE and abuse of my intended use is a sin.”
The Apostle Paul says, “But thou O man of God flee these things; follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness.” (1 Timothy 6:11).
Beware of becoming engrossed with riches, money, or its abuse. “For the love of money is the root of all evil.” It takes a righteous and Christian man to use money for the glory of God. “Whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.” (Col. 3:17)
