THE LOVE OF MONEY

In today’s society, whenever you turn on the television or the radio you will always hear about something pertaining to money and material possessions. We listen to the songs and see the life of the rich and famous and even on social media (especially Facebook) you find many flashing their money wanting everybody to know that they got it. Yes we need money in order to survive and there’s nothing wrong with buying whatever your heart desire and living a comfortable lifestyle especially when you’ve worked so hard for it. Here is what I have seen: It is good and fitting for one to eat and drink and to enjoy the good of all his labor in which he toils under the sun all the days of his life which God gives him; for it is his heritage. ( Ecclesiastes 5:18) So being financially stable is a gift from God but where the problem begins to occur at is that when a person is blessed financially, they only live for the moment. And a person who only lives for the moment lacks much wisdom; why do I say that? because some of us are forgetting that one day we must die. I will be reading from the book of Ecclesiastes and will break it down to you. In Ecclesiastes 2:18-19 it reads: Then I hated all my labor in which I had toiled under the sun, because I must leave it to the man who will come after me. And who knows whether he will be wise or a fool? Yet he will rule over all my labor in which I toiled and in which I have shown myself wise under the sun. This is also vanity_ King Solomon. For those of you who love flashing and boasting about your money, my question to you is this: If you drop dead right now, where and who will your money and everything go to? Do you have it planned and figured out already? If you have cars and living in a house, are you buying them to own them so that you can enjoy them now and that if anything happens to you then you can pass them down to your children or your children’s children so that all of your hard labor won’t be in vain? Over the years I have heard of certain individuals who have died, and once they died, family members fought over who was getting what. And I know that some of you have known people who’ve owned their own businesses while they were living only to lose it to a foreigner after their death; somebody who didn’t plan, sweat, nor worked for it. It’s time to stop showcasing money but to put it to good use and to be wise enough to enjoy the little that you may have right now and educate your children or whoever so they will know how to run the business or manage whatever you leave to them so they can continue the legacy. I do what I do for a reason, and I write for a reason because God has entrusted me with this task to reach out and to help millions of people, and not only am I doing it for people, but I’m also doing it to leave behind a legacy. I want to leave to my grandchildren more than just material things, but I’m leaving behind writings and teachings so that when they grow up they will be able to read The Power Of Celibacy and live by it. I’m leaving behind morals, so they will know how to conduct themselves as men and women and to teach their children also. Don’t let your labor be in vain but once again, stop flashing your money and put it to good use!!!!
