Money – whether you have been enslaved by it?

29 Apr

Before i give you this article, i would like to tell you. This post is based on the Bible and His (God) word.

Money, Have you heard this word before ? of course “Yes”
because we need money for the entire needs of our lives.
We need money to buy some food to eat, We need money to buy clothes to wear, We need money to buy house to live, etc…
BUT ?! wheter you have been enslaved by it ?
if now, you still try too hard to make money even if your life is pretty good , you are have been enslaved by money.
you have to realized that people never felt “more” and always feel “less”.
because people are never satisfied with what they have now.

So, Lets open your bible and read this

1 Timothy 6:6-11

But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. Those who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.11 But you, man of God, flee from all this, and pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love,endurance and gentleness.

See ?
Remember that every second you think about having more money to have “fun”. You forgot your GOD. and every second of it, you will one step forward to sin. because money have already take control your mind.

Remember this !
“less” does not mean “a little”, “more” does not mean “much”

there are so much factor of ambition to get the excess money. but, this one is the familiar one. it ussualy called “excessive lifestyle”

some people do not understand how to be grateful for what they had now. but hey always want better and better  and better. like i said, people are never satisfied with what they have now.

i ‘ll tell you a story : my friends tell me that He have a poor friends. He don’t have much money. but, when Blackberry cellphone is popular, he want to buy and he was going to borrow his friends money. but, my friend remind him to not borrow money from anyone because it does not match his standard of living.

you see ? you have to flashback your memories, and think. have you been like this. if yes, you have been enslaved by money.

Do you want to be free from the slavery of money ? if yes, i had the key. say “Enough” to yourself. it’s one of many word that difficult to say. because people never statisfied with what they have now.

say “Enough, Enough and Enough”.
the next step is “give”, if you have too much, don’t keep it for your self. give it some to people who more need it. im not trying to force you to spend your money. but i want to remind you.

God words said, “who sows he will reap” “Who give, he will receive”

and for the people who working, don’t work with the purpose of getting richer and richer and richer. because it will not stop. i’ll said it again, people never statisfied with what they have now. make God as the goal of your job. and remember, when you get more money, don’t keep it for your self and just spend it for your self. remember “Give”.

and for the people who still in school, don’t spend your parents money too much. you don’t know how hard they worked for your needs.

I think, its all i have to share
If you do not mind,
you can read this part of the bible.

1 timothy 6:6-11,17
Deuteronomy 8:17-18
Deuteronomy 11:10-15
Hebrews 13:5
proverb 28
Joshua 5:12
