It’s OK to have money it’s what you do with it that makes it a sin. Some people become so obsessed with making money and reaching their “Dream” of having what they want (Which usually overshadows what the Lord has given them), that they focus more on trying to reach material goals over spiritual ones.

I’m going to include some great scriptures below on why materialism is so wrong. It really bothers me that people will get grouchy and angry over their finances when they call themselves a follower of Christ. If you really put your complete faith and trust in God, then you’d be willing to live on the streets without a penny to your name, without complaining. Now most people would say that this isn’t God’s plan for them, but to that I say, if you’re so focused on money and possesions, how can you know what God’s will for you is when you’re so focused on money?

I want you to think of a scene here, and think about which one you would do….If you saw a path that led to Jesus, and one that led to money, which one would you take? Which one are you taking now? If you’re constantly dwelling on what your life would be like without something, then you’re obsessing, and taking the wrong path. Focus on what God has to offer you, treat people right, and see what happens to your spiritual bank.

Matthew 6:19-21 “Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.


Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.


Matthew 6:24 “No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.


Hebrews 13:5 Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”


1 Timothy 6:7-10 For we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs.


Luke 12:33 Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys.
