Is Your Desire For Money Leading You Down The Wrong Path?
Integrity – doing the right thing. Sometimes the pursuit of money can lead us to do or say things that call our integrity into question. If you find that your love of money is getting the better of you, OlyLife encourages you to step back and assess what is most important in your life. A life where you control your decisions and impulses with regard to money is a better life. The apostle Paul states in 1 Timothy 6:10 “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” When we veer off the best spiritual path to pursue a love of money, we are likely to bring ourselves a lot of trouble. These difficulties can be reflective of the distance we place between ourselves and our heavenly Creator, or perhaps bring legal, family, or career issues. We encourage you not to let your desire for money disproportionately shape your decisions or cause you to break your integrity.
Money Only Goes So Far
At the end of the day, there are more important things than money. In fact, money can buy some of your necessities such as food, water, shelter, and clothes; but it cannot purchase even more important desires such as love, respect, and a close relationship with God. When we are in the hospital bed or near the end of our life, it won’t be money that we are longing for. Instead, it will be the love of our family, friends and the comfort of the Almighty who we will be seeing in the short time ahead. As Paul says earlier in 1 Timothy 6:7 “For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it.” Live each day as if you will be seeing Jesus at the end of it and you will keep your desire for money in perspective and be closer to making the most of your one and only life – That’s OlyLife!
