“A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry; but money answereth all things” Ecclesiastes 10:19 I love it! I believe money does answer all things. Now I know some of you may disagree and say something like; ‘it’s not always about money’ or “For the love of money is the root of all evil” Let me say this; it is about the MONEY!! Make no mistake about it; IT IS…. ABOUT THE MONEY! And making as much of it as possible – don’t play.
I realize as the scripture states; “for the love of money is the root of all evil”- yes if you do evil and wrong things to get your money; doing any and everything negative to gain access to money; then yes it is the root of all evil. However; If you are strategic in your business dealings, investments, a good and honest corporate citizen, giving back and reinvesting in your communities; you work hard on your job and you’re able to save money as a result of, you give in and of yourself to charitable organizations, tithing; from all of that, you are able to acquire large amounts of money – I see that as a BLESSING; not evil. It’s really about interpretation.
One should not hate but congratulate those persons who have been rightfully gracious to others and receive their financial blessing in return. I have nothing but love for those ones; God continue to bless them and keep them.
We can’t fool ourselves when it comes to our income dollars. 99.9% of all our prayers can be answered with some money. Let’s think about it for a minute, what does it mean to you? How does it all add up? I think it’s safe to say that whatever any of us are doing to make a living, we are trying to get as much money; make as much money, as we possibly can.
‘Tough times don’t last…tough people do’ inspiring words; beautiful – pay your mortgage with those words, your car note, or any other bill obligations you have. All I’m saying is, if you haven’t already let’s please have realistic thoughts about our money and where it ranks in our life.
As I Mentioned (in one of my previous blogs) ‘money is a defense, wisdom is a defense,’ it’s the reason why so many people are defenseless because of a lack of wisdom to spend and invest their money wisely. I’m trying to get both wisdom and money at every turn. Take it or let it alone.
Use your wisdom and empower yourself to get the money you deserve to make. If you are one of those individuals who are sick and tired of being sick and tired and want to do something, why not be strategic in what you do. Click the link below; be truthful with yourself and what your options are.
