What good is it to seek progress the wrong way, when you know that ill-gotten progress is actually regress?
One of the major ways the enemy has gotten believers off of God’s destined path for their lives is with the lure of a quick buck. In Paul’s first letter to his spiritual son Timothy he spoke of this. Paul said, “But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows” (1st Tim 6:9,10).
1. Never violate your Godly integrity for a quick buck; it’s not worth it.
2. Beware of the money’s seduction. If you LOVE money it is only a matter of time before you do something you should not do to get it. The LOVE OF MONEY will get you in trouble.
3. Don’t pursue things, pursue God. If you pursue God things will pursue you (Mat 6:33).
