Introducing: Music Mondays

YouTube can be a giant waste of time, but there are also some awesome music videos to be seen.

Music is one of the most powerful forces you can encounter. It has the power to help lighten your mood and can give you a new perspective on a situation.

Money - Part 6

I love quotes, one liners, call them what you like. The quotes here have been collected by pastor Croft M. Pentz, from a book he compiled called: “The complete book of Zingers”. Printed by Tyndale House Publishers, Inc., Wheaton Illinois. He spend years collecting quotes and if you ever get a chance to buy one of his books then do so. They are brilliant quotes on money, the book has quotes on a variety of subjects and the quotes that follow are only some of the quotes on money.

Money - Part 5

Proverbs on money

The book of Proverbs has three main authors and has quite a lot to say concerning finances and managing them. This is one of my favourite books of the Bible. This is the second last part of the series, we are close to the end now. 

Commentary will be limited in this post due to the amount of scriptures quoted. 

Proverbs 1:2-3
2 Written down so we'll know how to live well and right, to understand what life means and where it's going; 3 A manual for living, for learning what's right and just and fair;” MSG

This is the purpose of the book of Proverbs, wisdom – we need it or we will suffer!

Money - Part 4

Paul and finances

He ministered all over the known world and he never mentioned that he did not have enough money, not did he take offerings where he went.

Romans 13:7-8
7 Pay to all what is owed to them: taxes to whom taxes are owed, revenue to whom revenue is owed, respect to whom respect is owed, honor to whom honor is owed. 8 Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.” ESV

Philippians 4:19 “But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” MKJV

Money - Part 3

Jesus on money

Jesus was always outspoken when it came to money. Nobody could challenge Him or surprise Him. Jesus said where your treasure is there your heart will be also. God wants to be your treasure!

Matthew 6:19-21
"19 "Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, 20 but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." ESV

This speaks directly to so many people today. Do you know someone who lives to accumulate stuff or money? Jesus tells us that this is not what life is about!
