The world is running scared. Fear is eating out the insides of the American people like no time in the past. People are beginning to understand that we are in trouble. No one seems to know where to turn for the answers to all of life’s problems. In the middle of all the hurt and pain in America is the FINANCIAL DISASTER that is threatening the very heart of our Country. Inflation, job losses, soaring prices and problems on every side.
THREE FACTS FOR US TO CONSIDER IN THIS ECONOMY:
1. THE POWER OF GOLD. Gold has a lot of POWER to do good or bad. Gold can build Churches, Hospitals, Schools and be used for the Glory of God. It can also be used to destroy and tear down everything that is good. It all depends on who has control of the GOLD.
2. THE PROBLEM OF GREED: Greed is the non-christian’s response to BLESSING. By scheming, stealing, and sneaking, a greedy person hoards what is meant to be shared by the people of God. GOLD is only a tool to be used by people, for either good or bad. How do you see it?
3. THE PROMISES THROUGH GIVING: The major difference between Satan and God is that Satan is a taker and God is a giver. Satan takes JOY, PEACE, LOVE. GOD GIVES JOY, PEACE, LOVE.
God permits the greedy person to accumulate wealth but withholds from his heart the SATISFACTION that is available to believers. Riches can be dangerous because people do not understand the purpose of why we are here on this planet in the first place.
CONSIDER THE PURPOSE OF GOD IN YOUR LIFE AND THEN FOLLOW IT WITH ALL YOU HAVE. IT IS A BLESSED LIFE TO LIVE!
