Be Indifferent About Money

Whether you have plenty of money or a little, remember, “Money is not part of who you are. You didn’t bring it with you at birth, nor will you take it with you at death.” Enjoy your money. Have money work for you and make it contribute to your life. See money for what it is, but no more. Don’t let money take over your whole life, because money is fickle. – Chin-Ning Chu
Keep an indifferent attitude towards it. “For the love of money is a root of all sorts of evil, and some by longing for it have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.” 1Timothy 6:10

  1. This is true, money is fickle, it comes and goes. However, our God stays the same. Matthew 6:33 says “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.” When it comes to money I think apathy is the opposite reaction to have. As God’s children we have DOMINION over the things of this Earth. Money is our soldier and we are the chief, directing it where to go. You can definitely do more good with MORE money versus less of it.

  3. I do not worry over money, even when I have little, by not worrying something always turns up. When in times which I have little money to tide me over to the end of the month I gather up some belongings I no longer need or require and I give them to a charity. This reminds me my life is good, I have a home with things in it, and much ‘richer’ than most. Gratitude is key.

  4. So true, it’s an awesome parable. Our pastor spoke about this rcently. In this day of instant gratification and instant whatever you want the power and need to sacrifice is often overlooked. Whatever one deems as success cannot be fully realized if nothing is given up to obtain it. You simply can’t have it all…..period. God Bless
