Money

February 24, 2014 8 comments

There are a few things that we all need.  Food.  Clothing.  Shelter.  Basic needs for all of us.  We all like to eat.  We need clothing because no one wants to see us naked.  We all like to sleep in the warm and dry.

There’s only one way that most of us can supply ourselves with those things.

Money

No, not the Pink Floyd song, though that’s what it’s about with its old cash register sound.  We all need money.

We go to work so that we will be paid with money.  Our employers charge money for their services.  Even our churches need money.  My church needs $853 just to turn the lights on each week.

No matter where we turn we need money.  Gas costs money.  Food costs money.

Money.

Money For Nothing

Let’s face it.  There’s a whole lot of stuff in our homes that money has bought that amounts to nothing.

We could call do inventories of the things we own only to find that much of it really amounts to nothing.

It could be a magazine subscription or old clothes that we hold onto because we can’t bear to let go of them.  It’s different for all of us.

Money Can’t Buy Me Love

Money can buy many things.  Like The Beatles sang, “Money can’t buy me love.”   Do you know what money can buy?

It can buy happiness.  Money can definitely buy happiness for a time.  What it can’t buy is joy

Money can do many things for us.

It just can’t do what Christ can do for it.

Have you ever tried to depend on money for happiness?
