Moving forward from this week, we will be learning about Financial planning.
“Money and possessions are the second most referenced topic in the Bible –
money is mentioned more than 800 times – and the message is clear: Nowhere in Scripture is debt viewed in a positive way.”
As men we need to have proper planning for money because money is a great servant but a worst master.
“No one can be a slave of two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot be slaves of God and of money.
Whoever is faithful in very little is also faithful in much, and whoever is unrighteous in very little is also unrighteous in much. So if you have not been faithful with the unrighteous money, who will trust you with what is genuine? And if you have not been faithful with what belongs to someone else, who will give you what is your own? No household slave can be the slave of two masters, since either he will hate one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You can’t be slaves to both God and money.” The Pharisees, who were lovers of money, were listening to all these things and scoffing at Him. And He told them: “You are the ones who justify yourselves in the sight of others, but God knows your hearts. For what is highly admired by people is revolting in God’s sight.
Place no trust in extortion, or false hope in stolen goods. If your riches increase, do not set your heart upon them.
Our learning from today is we need money but:
* Don’t allow money to be your master
* Be faithful in handling money
* Do not set your heart upon money
