Don't give your money too much credit.

Money should come with a warning label because it has some potential side effects. You don’t need to make much money to feel those side effects. Warning! If taken for prolonged periods wealth may impair perception of self, others, and God. You can be mastered by money whether you’re rich or poor. But materialism is not about how much stuff you have. It’s about what you do with it and how you feel about it. Money and material possessions promise provision, protection, and pleasure; but often over-promise and under-deliver. It’s not all it’s cracked up to be. Don’t misunderstand money and don’t give your money too much credit.

As you consider your wealth, may you remember the Giver, and place your hope in Him. As you enjoy your wealth, may you be free of guilt but not responsibility. Ask honestly, what does God want you to give, and what does God want you to give up? This week and always, may you love God with ALL your heart, soul, mind, and strength… And money!

How to Be Rich
 by Andy Stanley

1 Timothy 6:17 – Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.

1 Timothy 6:18-19 – Command them to do good, to be rich in good deeds, and to be generous and willing to share. In this way they will lay up treasure for themselves as a firm foundation for the coming age, so that they may take hold of the life that is truly life.
