V 19-24 “Do not lay up treasures on earth for yourselves, where moth and rust corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But layup treasures in Heaven for yourselves, where neither moth nor rust corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also. The light of the body is the eye. Therefore, if your eye is sound, your whole body shall be full of light. But if your eye is evil, your whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in you is darkness, how great is that darkness! No one 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. You cannot serve God and mammon”.
It is good to have money but it becomes demonic for money to have you! It is not until when money comes before you deal with it, you must deal with it now. It is so important because the only other god Jesus ever warned us about is mammon; the god of money. Many people in the mad quest to become rich, have unknowingly forsaken God. Some have even gone steps further by desperately chasing after money through diabolic means. 1Timothy 6:9 “But they who will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts which plunge men into destruction and perdition”.
Joseph got it right about money and power ever before it actually got into his hand. The bible called him prosperous in the house of Potiphar and the Prison ever before he got anything personal to his name; Genesis 39:2 & 23 “And the LORD was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian; The keeper of the prison looked not to anything that was under his hand; because the LORD was with him, and that which he did, the LORD made it to prosper”.
On the other hand, Judas Iscariot was covetous, John 12:4-6 “Then saith one of his disciples, Judas Iscariot, Simon’s son, which should betray him, why was not this ointment sold for three hundred pence, and given to the poor? This he said, not that he cared for the poor; but because he was a thief, and had the bag, and bare what was put therein”.
Avoid covetousness, there is a thin line between Will of God and covetousness. Beware of what you claim by faith, root your Will in the Will of God for your line.
Prayer point: by the power of Holy Ghost, I will never worship mammon in Jesus name.
