Of all the life lessons we can learn from the Bible, some people find that the most uncomfortable ones relate to money. The world worships money to such a degree that it is elevated to the status of an idol, and entire industries have been built around it. Money is nothing more than pieces of paper and metals, yet many people base their entire lives around it. Regardless of the currency or denomination, when we trust it more than God, it can fail us.

The devil has tricked many people into thinking that they can get rich through their own efforts, and the “get your hands off my money” mindset is prevalent. The Scriptures teach us that money is simply a tool to help others, and hoarding it is against God’s will. “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also”(Matthew 6:19-21). Looking at the business dealings of some of the large corporations, big businesses and mega banks today, it seems like this lesson has been largely forgotten.

The treasures the Bible speaks of are the blessings that money can’t buy, such as peace, joy, salvation, victory over sin, eternal life, abundance, and prosperity. When most people think of the word “prosperity,” they think of it in the narrow financial sense. God’s kind of prosperity not only includes financial blessings, but also success in every other area of life. He brings a supernatural peace that settles over our homes, our marriages, our children, and our relationships with others. “And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus”(Philippians 4:7, NKJV).

Money is mentioned numerous times in the Bible because God knows that we’re so attached to it, the devil will use it as a tool to try and trip us up in our Christian walk. When we trust God enough to obey His Word, we find that something happens in our hearts and we experience a change in our attitude about money. Jesus told the story of the rich young ruler who trusted money more than God. (Mark 10:17-22). His earthly wealth blinded him to the eternal riches in heaven.

Creflo Dollar: Led by the Spirit

Led by the Spirit - Creflo Dollar - Creflo Dollar Ministriesby: Creflo Dollar

Remember as a child when you made a bad decision that later led to a guilty conscience? We’ve all been there and have had our own experiences—it’s part of growing up. As children, most of us were instilled with values that taught us to do our best and be honest and respectful. The world calls that internal moral compass our conscience, but when we study the Bible, we learn that it’s really the Holy Spirit at work.

When we ignore that little voice inside of us, we usually make a mistake or do something we later regret. The conscience that speaks to us loud and clear about what’s right and wrong is actually the voice of God! The Scriptures tell us what role He should play in our decision-making process. “But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you” (John 14:26, NKJV).

Growing up, our parents did their best to teach us godly values, warning us not to follow the crowd or do something just because everyone else was doing it. Maybe it was the party that all the popular kids, along with some unsavory characters, were attending, or the temptation to experiment with something we knew we shouldn’t.

Some of us may have snuck out and done it anyway, and were racked with guilt later. That was the Holy Spirit in us, pointing out our mistake, just like parents do with their children. “And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks to you as to sons: ‘My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, Nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him; For whom the Lord loves He chastens, And scourges every son whom He receives.’ If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten?” (Hebrews 12:5-7, NKJV). This is the type of correction that leads kids to “’fess up” to their parents and admit what they did.
