What does the Bible say about money? You may be surprised to learn there are more than 2,300 verses that focus on money and wealth. In fact, Jesus said more about money than the topics of heaven and hell combined. Money can be a rival to the worship of God. Jesus warned of the impossibility of serving two masters when He said, "No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.” Matthew 6:24. Inspired of the Lord, the apostle Paul wrote, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.” I Timothy 6:10. The verse is often misquoted as “money is the root of all evil”. Yet money is neutral – neither good nor bad. It is the love of money that is the root of all evil. It is a form of idolatry.

In his letter to the church in Ephesus, Paul warned Christians, “Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.” Ephesians 5:15-16. Living wisely involves making good use of our time. We need to invest our time and energy in that which has eternal value. Time invested in sharing the gospel so that others may receive salvation through faith in Jesus is time well spent. It is the Lord who has entrusted us with His time on earth and we ought to be good stewards of the time given to us. The worst thing we could do is manage our time as if it belongs to us. Time belongs to God, so ask for His wisdom in how to best use it. Then allow His Spirit to guide you in the use of His time. The morning message this Lord’s Day will focus on using our time wisely based upon our reading of Chapter 18 of BELIEVE. ...
