Priorities of Prosperity
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
– Matthew 6:24
God isn’t against your having money. He’s against money having you. He’s against your making it your priority and putting your trust in it instead of in Him.
Why? Because He knows money makes a lousy god. Its power is limited. It will only buy so much. It will only go so far.
If you need healing from an incurable disease, money won’t help you at all. If your family is falling apart, money won’t mend it. But if you’ll seek God first, His prosperity will reach into every area of your life.
God is so generous that He desires you to have the best on this earth, just as you desire the best for your children. His plan is for you to have all of your needs met according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Get in on that plan by keeping your priorities straight. Seek Him first and His righteousness.
Make pleasing God your No. 1 priority. Set your eyes on Him above all else and all these things will be added to you.
