Money and Wealth
Money is not everything but certainly its everyone’s requirement. I heard days ago, about a man winning the lottery for at least 100 million. Wow! That’s a dream come true for him and that’s awesome.
Money can be both a curse and a blessing.
Wealth according to google is defined as an abundance of valuable possessions or money.
With that big amount for sure you will get excited and overwhelmed on what to do. Buy all you want to cover all your frustrations since you were a kid – shoes, bags, food, etc. Treat all your friends to Jollibee or give away groceries to all your neighbors. The possibilities are endless on a quick glance.
It will become a curse if it will corrupt your mind and heart. How? If you think you can buy everything or pay everyone to get what you want and all you need you are most likely consumed by its curse.
Money is designed as a tool. It depends on how you use it. Primarily, money is used to buy our needs. We also use it to help and serve other people – that’s when money become a blessing.
What exactly is the purpose of money?
I believe money and wealth is designed to test our stewardship. It is the ultimate trial to test who our god is and “how” we exist and live.
Actually, I wanted to write more about money and wealth but it is very broad. I’ll make it a series of posts so stay tuned, we’ll learn together for sure.
