The Danger of Loving Money

Text: 1st Timothy 6:6-10

What should the attitude of the Christian be towards money? Well, it is certainly one of the necessary things of life that is used to purchase food, clothing, transportation, shelter, and services of various kinds. It is also used to bless others by meeting their needs. Moreover, we are commanded by God to regularly bring our tithe into the Lord’s house and thereby receive his blessing. Yet, we should also know that money can be a temptation, and snare and a pathway that leads to our own destruction. Jesus warned his disciples “No one can serve two masters… You cannot serve God and money” (Matt. 6:24). And so, we would do well to take Jesus’ admonition to heart and resolve by God’s grace to practice generosity, learn Christian contentment, and rejoice in God’s promises–of these actions God greatly approves!
