Quote from Phaithh:I really do agree with you because riches should be accomplished while in Christ so that he can help us to manage it adequately and not allow it affect us negatively( in our behaviour) and in our service to God and so that we put God first before our riches. But if riches is acquired outside christ, then It is possible it makes one neglect God and think we are enough in ourselves of which can lead to other unpalatable things.Someone said to me, "there are three (3) important things to a man on earth:1. Money2. Money3. MoneyMoney is very important for our everyday living, without money we cannot really live. So, money is good, the problem is - having money without GOD.King Solomon said in Ecclesiastes 10:19b "... money answers all things" but he later realized that having this money without GOD is absolutely vanity upon vanity (Eccl. 12:8) and that was why he further concluded in Ecclesiastes 12:13"Let us now hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear GOD, and keep His commandments: for this is the whole duty of man."Don't take money above GOD. Most people just because they want to make money - they will stop going to the Church or even become Sunday Christians. They won't have time for personal devotion with GOD or with their families and when asked, they always say,"I've been busy with work, no time".They've derailed from the The Way (John 14:6) to other ways because of money. Little wonder, Jesus said it's is still possible for a camel to pass through the needle's eye than for a rich man to enter into the Kingdom of GOD. Wow!Getting money is not the issue now but worshipping money as if it's your maker is a sin. "That shall not worship any other gods aside Me"Money has become a god to people - they worship it and do anything just to get it.When I came across this verse in Proverbs, I didn't understand what the writer was trying to communicate at first but now I think I understand. Proverbs 30:8b says:"... give me neither poverty nor riches - feed me with food convenient for me".And he further explained the reason in verse 9:"Lest I be full, and deny thee, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor and steal, and take the name of my GOD I'm vain."When one is poor, he will devise evil means to get money and when one is too rich, he will become lofty and proud.The prayer is that we should ask GOD to give us the wealth that will be convenient for us, so we will not sin.

Actually you are right, money can pay for healthy living. Contrary to what most people believe, wealthy people can bargain for good health with the money they have. If you are poor you would not be able to live the kind of like you desire, and of course, you won't have the means to do things that can boost your health. Poverty is bad o, if you can, avoid it by all means. It incapacitates you in every way not just healthwise.

Hmmm! Amazing insight we all exhibited. So true that the need for money cannot be overemphasised. However, I would like to spread my tentacles a little bit adding to all you've rightly suggested. I would always say the motive behind why we do things matters a lot I fact not the works that are judged even if they would pass through fire but the very intent of the works. When money is loved more than God, then it become an idol. Infact, it's not just money alone.If you do have money, yes you claim you do not love it, all needs and want are met Hun which is absolutely fine but your motives are all wrong then double check your claim again because the worse destruct of self is lying to oneself. Some things creeps in that we do not even notice because they are subtle and insignificant. Even in the need for normal and healthy living, if intent aren't properly checked, then we aren't better than the rich man who thought to extend his barn for more storage. Most people who turned away sorrowfully where people who couldn't extend their arms a little just because of intent.

You don't love money, you need it? Hmmmm, that's tricky. What's there not to love about money? The fact you can afford what you want when you want or the fact you can achieve much more when you have money is enough to be in love with money. The bible states, money answereth all things so it's needful.
