Money isn’t everything.

Tuesday 31st May 2011

Money is important, but it isn’t everything. Money pays for things and helps us survive in our society, but it doesn’t promise us a fulfilling life. I don’t think many people come to the end of their life and wish that they’d made more money. I think most people come to the end of their lives and wish they’d spent more time building closer relationships with family and friends.

Proverbs 23:4&5 (NKJV) say, “Do not overwork to be rich… for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away like an eagle…”

What can we learn from these verses?

1. Work hard but don’t overwork. A Girl of Wisdom is a hardworking chick! She does her very best and fulfills her responsibilities. She is savvy when it comes to money. She knows how to budget and save and has no problems with shopping and pampering from time to time! However,  money is not her number one priority. She works hard, but not at the expense of neglecting her relationships with loved ones and being there for others.

2. Value money but don’t trust in it. A Girl of Wisdom is not wasteful with her money and doesn’t take it for granted. She understands that she can use her finances to help others and to make a difference to those in need. However, money is not her source of security. She places her trust in God, knowing that money can vanish as quickly as it arrived, but God will never fail her and will provide for her in ways that money never could.

I pray these thoughts cause you to reflect upon your views of money and its impact on your decisions. Remember, money is important, but it isn’t everything.
