Freedom from Money

Just like prison quenches normal life--marital life, family life, work life, business life, so does money.

How does one get out of this prison system of money?

First, take the right attitude towards money. Money is not evil; the love of money is evil. Money is not a prison; the love of money makes it a prison.

Second, treat money rightly. Money is a wonderful servant but a horrible master.

Third, remember you can't take it with you forever. When the world's richest man, John D. Rockefeller died, his accountant was asked, "how much did he leave behind?" He paused a moment and said, "everything; and all of it." You can't take it with you.

Fourth, look to God to provide for your needs. God can give you joy, peace, stability or hope; God can restore relationships to health; God can guarantee the future--your future forever. God can give you forgiveness. God can release you from money.
