Money ( Exodus 20 v 3 / 17 )
A friend told me about a relative who was ill,the person is elderly and married, all of sudden they have relatives coming out of the woodwork, they really must love her, or could there be another answer?, it may be , because she is wealthy It is a sad comment that the love of money shows people for what they are, our Saviour spoke of some of the religious leaders who took advantage of widows ( Mt 23 v 14).It is very sad that the death of a loved one can bring out the worse in some people, but them we must always remember that we are living in a fallen world ,the effects of it manifest itself in a multitude of ways. This applies to our love of money ,people will kill for it,cheat for it,betray for it,you name it,they have done it, all for the love of money. This does not just mean in the major things but in all things,after all you have to look yourself in the mirror,make no mistake we soon find out that we have a thing called a conscience,and let us not forget,God in all this, He is not after your money, you are more important than your money, but when it comes to humanity ,our money , possessions , they are not more important than God,. Jesus says come follow Me, but you must rid yourself of all other gods. Luke 16 v 13 Jesus said You cannot serve God and money.
