The Greatest Currency of this world
“for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth,..” Deuteronomy 8:18
Sometimes people would think that they can do anything if they have MONEY and for that they will even sacrifice the time that they have for God. They would work day and night without having a moment for God who gave them the ability to work.
God has given us 6 days to work but He requires only one day for Himself.
What are they going to do with the riches of this world? Now, suppose there is a man who was very rich. He work day and night since small. He thought that through the wealth that he had he can live a hundred years. But in the age of 50, God took his life in an accident. Now all the wealth that he had goes to his one and only son. After the mourning period, the son finds for himself a wife and live happily with the father’s properties and wealth which was left for him. But in the age of 30, the son also met an accident and died. Now all the wealth goes to his wife alone. And after the mourning period, since the wife is too young she got married again with another man. Now, this man who has no blood connection with this rich man who died at the age of 50 would enjoy all his wealth.
ONE PERSON WORKS HARD BUT SOMEONE ELSE REAPS THE BENEFIT!
This is what will happen to a person who runs after the wealth of world. I never say don’t work but I am saying work but give the first priority to God. Instead of saving money for yourself, use it for the good of others. For example; give it to the poor, fatherless and widows. Help those who are in need.
What is the benefit of giving those who need? FOR EXAMPLE, supposed if 1 Euro equals to RM4 of Malaysia, so does whatever you give the needy, it equals to more than 1000 times in heavenly currency. So, use the wealth to do good for others, not for your own good alone. Jesus said, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal, ..” Matthew 6:19-20
We can’t be sure of where would be every single cents of our money will be in the future. Money can never buy your future. The greatest currency in this world is not Euro, Dollar, Ringgit, Rupees or etc but it is the BLOOD OF JESUS! All the other currencies in this world could not redeem or save a man’s life from death but only the BLOOD OF JESUS can do.
So, instead of running after the wealth, run for BLOOD OF JESUS!
