TOPIC: Money and Character
SCRIPTURE: No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. Matthew 6:24.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Our character in the area of money affects our destiny and welfare both in time and in eternity.
The Scripture makes it clear that money seeks to be served. It seeks to master or lord it over people. Money easily changes people’s behaviour; the real behaviour of people comes out around money.
Now, I will like you to take note of three facts:
1. Our character in the area of money affects our destiny and welfare both in time and in eternity
The truth is, you don’t really know who people are until you try them with money. The real character of a person is revealed when it has to do with money. Money is a revealer of character. It is when you deal with people in the area of money that you really know who they are. How people behave around money affects their destiny and their welfare on earth and also in eternity.
2. Money affects character and destiny both positively and negatively
Money matters affect career and destiny both positively and negatively. This means, the way and manner you go about money affects you positively and negatively. Your character and destiny are affected depending on how you behave around money.
3. The understanding of consequences imparts caution to life’s actions
When you understand consequences, you avoid the actions that lead to those consequences. In other words, people are cautious when they are conscious of consequences. So, when we understand the consequences of evil money, that is, the consequences of taking evil or unrighteous money, we will be more cautious or careful with the kind of money we get and how we get it.
Remember this: our character in the area of money affects our destiny and welfare both in time and in eternity
Do not allow money to influence your character and destiny.
Make up your mind to master money.
PRAYER: I receive the grace Lord to master money. Help my character not to be negatively influenced by money Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
