Work brings profit, but mere talk leads to poverty! Proverbs 14:23
IF YOU DON’T MAKE IT A PRIORITY IT WILL NEVER BE A REALITY
Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with us when we leave it. So if we have enough food and clothing, let us be content. But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:6-10
1. DO I FIND MY SECURITY IN GOD OR MONEY?
Trust in your money and down you go! But the godly flourish like leaves in the spring. Proverbs 11:28
Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, “I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.” So we can say with confidence, “The lord is my helper, so I will have no fear. What can mere people do to me?” Hebrews 13:5-6
MONEY IS A TOOL NOT A LIFE-SOURCE AND SUCCESS BASED ON WHAT WE DO WITH IT NOT ON THE AMOUNT WE HAVE ACCUMULATED.
2. DO I FIND MY IDENTITY IN GOD OR MONEY?
Then he said, “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.” Luke 12:15
“Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.” Luke 12:21
Those who love money will never have enough. Ecclesiastes 5:10
For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. Psalms 139:13-14
3. DO I FIND MY ANSWERS IN GOD OR MONEY?
IF WE NEVER IDENTIFY OUR NEGATIVE MINDSETS WE WILL NEVER ADOPT PRACTICAL WAYS OF GROWTH.
The Lord is near to those who are discouraged; He saves those who have lost all hope. Psalms 34:18 GNT
Sincerity and truth are what you require; fill my mind with your wisdom. Psalms 51:6 GNT
A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences. Proverbs 27:12
I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation. 2 Corinthians 6:2 NIV
