A friend of mine once said
I know that the Angels are looking down on us from heaven and feel sad about how we steal, kill,and destroy each other over money which is the devils work
but I want to go a little further than that and say, God gave us here on this earth little pieces of heaven. Things that only appreciate in value and never depreciate in value. Things like gold,diamonds, ivory, copper, pearls, rubies etc. are everywhere in heaven. It says so in the book of Revelation
so my real question is why do we go crazy over money? A piece of paper that has to be burned and destroyed when there is not enough real equity valve to back it up . The precious stones and natural resources that I talked about earlier.
In short I want to urge everyone to get closer with God because Jesus tells us in our Holy Bible
I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings. “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. So, if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? (Luke 16:9-11 NIV)
In closing I leave you with these words.
Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 NIV)!!!
