More Money Won’t Solve It

Money answers all things, but it is not the answer to all things. People often try to solve every problem by throwing money at it when they become wealthy, but this does not solve all of their problems. In a similar way, many people believe that having more money will make everything better and solve all of their problems. Here’s a not-so-secret secret: money can only amplify your current state of being. If you are currently depressed, becoming rich will likely only make you more depressed. If you are stingy now, you will be rich and even more stingy later. If you are lost now, you will likely become rich and even more lost later. If you hardly make time for and make God the priority in your life now, He will likely be one of the last priorities in your life when you become wealthy.

As you can see, more money often just magnifies what you already are. Money cannot change your heart; only God can do that. If money has the potential to ruin you, know that He will not put more on you than what you can bear. Money is not inherently bad, but it can easily become an idol. Money may not be a wicked tool, but in the hands of a corrupt or wicked heart, it becomes the root of all kinds of evil.

A feast is made for laughter, wine makes life merry, and money is the answer for everything.

Ecclesiastes 10:19

For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs. (1st Timothy 6:10)
