Hello friends, this is the day that the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad😇🙏❤️.
My best friend told me to tell you about – MONEY.
MONEY is a medium of exchange. Evidently, the oldest method of making a business transaction.
MONEY CAN BE BOTH BENEFICIAL AND HARMFUL.
MONEY provides a defense against poverty and its attendant troubles, enabling persons to procure both necessities and luxuries. For this reason the possibility exists of a person’s beginning to trust in money as security.
The love of money is a root of all sorts of injurious things, and by reaching out for this love some have been led astray from the faith and have stabbed themselves all over with many pains.
For money, persons have perverted justice, prostituted themselves, committed murder, betrayed others, and falsified the truth.
On the other hand, the proper use of money is approved by God. This includes contributing toward the advancement of pure worship and giving material assistance to those in need. Although much good can thus be done with money, the most valuable things – – – spiritual food and drink, eternal life itself – can be obtained without MONEY.
Do Money Really Talks?
MONEY makes everyone hear and respond. If you have money, you have influence and resources. "Money answers to every demand, hears every wish, grants whatever one longs for, helps to all" (Keil and Delitzsch, Old Testament Commentary, 6:779). In this view, the statement that "Money is the answer for everything" is an ancient version of our modern saying "Money talks".
To the foolish, "it is money that is the answer to everything" (Eaton, Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries, 16:138).
In modern terms, the life of the foolish is circumscribed by partying, alcohol, and money. We see this foolishness play itself out in the world daily.
It is unfortunately true that "Money talks" and seems to be the answer to everything in our world. But wisdom decrees, to the king on down, that the pursuit of riches leads to trouble. Not all problems can be fixed with money.
In the end, money, wealth, and material possessions are a hard taskmaster, and only a fool would say, "Money is the answer for everything."
