Is It Wealth That You Wish For?

  Wealth can be a blessing or a curse, depending on whether it is used as a means to exercise power, or a tool of self-indulgence .Wealth's danger is that it can turn our focus toward our own enjoyment.  Although money and wealth can be used as a tool in a setting of positiveness. It can help to build many things of use to others. On the other hand there are some who possess money  and hold a sacred stewardship. Our resources are not to be privately held and consumed but are to be used as a means of generosity, as a way of showing care for our neighbor. So many abuse the use of money. Less we forget that we are judged by our works, love and charity. As Jesus explains using many parables in the books of Mark, Matthew, John and Luke, money can be the root to a lot of evil.  However if sin is done with wealth and money, man  can ask for repentance and forgiveness. And through Jesus he or she is welcome back into the fold. It is just so important that when a blessing such as money is bestowed upon you that you pray mightily that it does not interfere with a good life.
Luke 16:13 No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”
