Victorious Life

The Bible say’s in 1 Timothy 5:8“But if anyone does not provide for his own, and especially for those of his household, he has denied the faith, and is worse than an unbeliever” 1 Timothy 5:8

What a strong statement????? The Bible equates one who does not provide for one’s own family to the status that is below an unbeliever. In another instance in Proverbs 13:22 the Bible say’s “A good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children”

The people like to glorify what is easy to glorify & avoid what is tough to obey.

Remember the classic Bible quote from the Gospel of Matthew “Look at the lilies of the field……”; we all know that quote by heart & miss-quote it out of context at the very first opportunity. Jesus does speak of the love of money as the root cause of all evil, but he also speaks on the qualities you need to have to create wealth in this world and the next. Want proof????

24 of the 39 parables that Jesus spoke were about money. Don’t believe me, “check out what I am claiming”. Jesus always wanted his people (Us believers) to be clear on the concepts of money. Jesus always directed his question at ‘Where is your heart?”; “On the money?” or “On Me?”

When we look at the concept of Saving & Investing from this angle the answer is clear. I am always looking at ways to make my family secure as the Bible says we need to make our family secure. You do your best for your family & leave the rest to God. This will be a stronger example rather than saying “God will take care of my family” & you absolving yourself of the responsibility to take care of your family.

The Bible say’s in Acts 1:8 “But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth”. Aha!!!, How much more clarity is needed? First “Jerusalem” (Your Home), then “Judea” (Your Neighborhood) & last “to the end of the earth”

If you have been neglecting your family for your secular work “or” God’s work, then this is a wake up call for you. First, Save & Invest in your family (Both Spirit & Money) & then move forth to conquer the world.

God Bless You.
