Money Matters!

One day Winston Churchill was informed that he was to address the United Kingdom in one hour. He called a taxi and said to the driver, “Drive me to the British Broadcasting Corporation just as fast as you can.”

“Sorry, sir,” he responded, “I can’t. Sir Winston is to broadcast at six o’clock. I want to get home to hear him.”

The answer thrilled Churchill and he reached in his pocket and gave him a large sum of money.

“The devil with Churchill,” said the driver. “Hop in!” and off they rode.

There is nothing wrong with having money. But there is something wrong if money masters us.

Jesus said that if power or possessions, position or priorities overwhelm us they will ultimately become worthless. What we have in this world will not go with us into the next. Everything here is temporary and cannot be exchanged for salvation or eternity with Him. We Christians are obligated to make the pursuit of God the most important goal of our lives.

Prayer: Help us, Heavenly Father, to live lives that demonstrate to others that You matter most. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Scripture: Mark 6:36-37
