Jeremiah 17:5-8
Thus says the Lord : “Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes flesh his strength, Whose heart departs from the Lord . For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, And shall not see when good comes, But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, In a salt land which  is not inhabited. “Blessed  is the man who trusts in the Lord , And whose hope is the Lord . For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters, Which spreads out its roots by the river, And will not fear when heat comes; But its leaf will be green, And will not be anxious in the year of drought, Nor will cease from yielding fruit.



The United States currency says “In God we trust”, yet most people trust in the money instead of trusting in God. They are so caught up with, and consumed with the mighty dollar, than with the Almighty God, who opens their eyes to see the money, and provides the resources to make the money, like the trees, paper, people and ink to name a few. Unfortunately, this is a world-wide problem. Many people like to say money is power, failing to realize that it does not have power because it can’t talk to you, save you from hell, or buy your way into heaven. In Matthew 19:24  Jesus reminds us that it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. Why? Because they are so consumed with getting and counting money that they forget about God, who made it possible for them to receive money.

There is nothing wrong with being rich, just as long as you don’t love it more than God or allow it to replace God. The love of money is the root of all evil. 1 Timothy 6:10 says it best, “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” Then in verse seventeen it tells us to tell those who are rich in this world, not to be proud, and not to trust in their money, which will soon be gone; But their trust should be in the living God, who richly gives us all we need for our enjoyment..and to do good. We must not allow money to  become our  master, because Matthew 6:13 reminds us that, “No man can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to one and despise the other, you cannot serve God and money (Mammon).”

For what profit is it to a man, if he gains the whole world and lose his soul (Luke 9:25) As Peter said in Acts 8:20, “Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money.” I wonder how many people in the world think that they can buy their way into heaven. Sorry to disappoint those of you who believe you can because you cannot purchase your way into heaven. Money doesn’t talk as some people might think, because it doesn’t speak God’s language or any other for that matter. The only way to God is through Jesus Christ His only begotten Son (John 14:6). So if you are interested go to the top of this blog, click on to the salvation page, follow the instructions, and pray the salvation prayer. We can only trust in God and money does not talk it burns a hole in your pocket and leads you to  burn in hell. Choose Christ today. Money can neither walk or talk, IF IT COULD IT WILL TELL YOU  THAT YOU CAN’T BUY  GOD.

Now unto Him who is able to keep us from falling, and to present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy. To the only wise God, our Savior, be glory, honor, praise, and thanks for using me His humble servant to relay this message to His children. To Him be dominion and power, both now and forever, in Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.
