Do You Know the Truth About Money?

Having more money can give you more opportunities to do good in this world.The Bible says, "This gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the entire world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come" (Matthew 24:14). By fulfilling this commission will require money-lots of it. But money by itself will never make you happy or secure. Solomon, one of the world's richest men, wrote: "Do not overwork to be rich; because of your own understanding, cease! Will you set your eyes on that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away like a bird flying to heaven" (Proverbs 23:4-5). When one of the world's wealthiest men died recently, a reporter asked a family member, "How much money did he leave behind? The relative responded, "All of it". No matter how much money you make, save, invest, or keep, eventually your money will leave you, or you will leave your money. I remember hearing someone say once  upon a time that there are seven ages of man: First, a child sees the earth. Second, he desires it. Third, he hustles to acquire it. Fourth, he decides to be satisfied with about half of it. Fifth, he decides to be satisfied with less than half. Sixth, he is now content to possess a three-by-six-foot burial spot. Seventh, he gets it! There are many things you can live without - and large wealth is one of them. What you cannot live without, however, is peace with God, a family filled with love, a lifelong friendship with your children, and a life well-lived for the glory of God.
