Money


Money

Money can buy a house,.................but not a home.
Money can buy a bed,...................but not sleep.
Money can buy a clock,.................but not time.
Money can buy a book,..................but not knowledge.
Money can buy food,....................but not an appetite.
Money can buy position,................but not respect.
Money can buy blood,...................but not life.
Money can buy medicine,................but not health.
Money can buy insurance,...............but not safety.
Money can buy sex,.....................but not love

You see, beyond the basic necessities of life, Money can't buy anything that people really need. At least not what's most important.

May the Lord bless you and keep you

Nice- but why not understand Jesus a bit better?
Without money- you have nothing to provide for the poor with...
without money- you can not buy a home (or 10 homes ) and share it with the homeless...
without money- you can not take a friend who needs doctoring- to the doctor...
without money- you can not serve God as Jesus said to serve God.
If we get past our aversion to "money" and into stewardship - OF money THAT GOD WILL PROVIDE- We could literally change the world. If we believe JESUS- it's not the money that is the problem- but the LACK OF IT IN CONTEXT OF STEWARDSHIP.
If ya had $10 MILLION- how many shelters could you afford? How many MEALS could you provide for folks IN YOUR OWN HOMETOWN? We aim LOW- we get LITTLE. And even THAT "little"- we NEED FOR OUR OWN SELVES. Jesus promised ABUNDANCE- not poverty. Just have to know what He was teaching is all.

    Quoting  :

Let me ask ya- IF you were to dedicate EVERY MOMENT OF YER LIFE TO GOD- INCLUDING all of your "private time- while doing EVERYTHING HE SAID TO DO- IF you had a MANSION WITH 10 BEDROOMS, 5 Baths, 2 kitchens, and al of the other rooms and amenities you would need to take in 10 families- and thaty SAME mansion had a tiny cottage out back with just enough creature comforts to get comfortable so you could rest etc after your day's labors in the MANSION YOU OWN- would that change yer mind about how to understand SERVICE TO OTHERS AND DENIAL OF SELF? That "MAnsion"- though AVAILABLE TO YOU- is used exclusively for others- you serve them there, you care for them there, encourage, support and LOVE them there- and NEVER take any credit for OWNERSHIP- since GOD OWNS IT- NOT YOU.
Sooooooooo... if we BEGIN to understand what CHRIST WAS TEACHING- does it get any easire to UNDERSTAND PERFECTION? Jesus set us UP to be the BEST SERVANTS GOD COULD DEVISE. All we have forgotten- is that GOD OWNS US AND EVERYTHING HE GIVES US.
WE DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON OURSELVES UNLES GOD SAYS TO- AND THAT IS INDEED PART OF SERVING OTHERS- Do yo SERVE IN FILTHY RAGS- Or do you ACT THE PART OF THE GENEROUS HOST / HOSTESS GOD CREATED YOU TO BE.
Today's "Christianity" has NO CLUE HOW TO SERVE GOD AS GOD DECREED. We are SO FRAKKIN SELF CENTERED- WE THINK ONLY OF OUR OWN SELVES BUT NEVER WHAT GOD SET US UP TO DO FOR HIM.
So HOW MANY MANSIONS DO YA WANT? How about a HUNDRED- 1 for EACH OF YOUR FRIENDS AND FAMILY WHO WOULD ALSO SERVE GOD PERFECTLY? Hmmmmm? We don't DO it for us- WE ONLY ENJOY THE LEFT OVERS- Cuz that little cottage out back? It's THE SIZE OF A SMALL MANSION AND JUST AS NICE. God ain't no dummy- HE PAYS HIS SERVANTS GENEROUSLY. See JESUS for further details.

P.S. Don't get me wrong....
If ya don't TRUST JESUS- yer never gunna find that "way" to the SLAVERY He was trying to teach ya.
We OBEY the COMMAND TO BE SERVANTS- or we sit in SIN and MISS HEAVEN. Simple as that. No middle ground- and NO OTHER WAY THAN JESUS ONLY AND ONLY JESUS.
God MADE YOU PROMISES. Look at yer own life. DO YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO SERVE 5000 and never bat an eyelash? Jesus said ya can- IF YA FOLLOW ONLY HIM. Think about it. Just THINK about it. UNDERSTAND- HE NEVER LIED ABOUT RECEIVING 100 HOMES (etc ) IF YA LEAVE THE ONE YA GOT NOW. He really DID mean that- BUT YA CAN NOT BE STUPID ABOUT IT. One step at a time - ONE STEP AT A TIME. Never walk away from yer stuff- IF YOU DO NOT HAVE WHAT JESUS PROMISED ALREADY. GOD NEVER ASKED YOU TO SACRIFICE_ HE SAID TO RECEIVE!!!!!!!!!! THINK ABOUT IT. If ya NEED HELP UNDERSTANDING- GO LEARN FROM JESUS THIS TIME!!!!!! Wanna BE A TRUE SERVANT OF GOD? LEARN WHAT THAT EVEN MEANS! YOU WILL BE THE BEST THERE EVER WAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Jesus said so. BELIEVE HIM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
