Seeds of Destiny 9th October 2020 Today Devotional Message written by Pastor Paul Enenche
TOPIC: THE LIFESTYLE OF GREED
When money is allowed to control a man’s life, it can destroy his destiny.
SCRIPTURE: For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: When money is allowed to control a man’s life, it can destroy his destiny.
The lifestyle of greed has been confirmed to be a deadly enemy of destiny. The lifestyle of greed can manifest as the love of money or the spirit of covetousness.
Now, take note of the following key thoughts on money:
a. Evil is rooted in the love of money.
Evil is rooted in the love of money (1 Timothy 6:10). And because evil is rooted in the love of money, the love of money is a destroyer of destiny. When money is allowed to control a man’s life, it can destroy his destiny.
b. Money is a wonderful servant but a terrible task master.
Money always answers all things (Ecclesiastes 10:19). Money is a wonderful servant but a terrible task master. For example, if you send money to buy a car or build a house for you, it will go. Money answers all things but it is a terrible task master.
c. The love of money is a killer of the love of God.
Money itself is neutral but the love of money, which is greed or covetousness, kills the love of God in the hearts of people. You cannot serve God and mammon (Matthew 6:24). You can worship God with money but you cannot worship God and money.
My counsel is, make up your mind not to be used by money but use money to serve God.
Remember this: When money is allowed to control a man’s life, it can destroy his destiny.
