Good evening my lovely followers, it has been awhile, I’m sorry.
I would like to write this post to follow up on my previous post: Can you make God’s work into a business.
I was thinking about this post for the past week and today it passed my mind again. When I checked my blog website, I received a reply from one of my followers. See the comment below:
http://shopgirlanonymous.com: There is a line a believe. God gave you knowledge to write a book, to spread to the world. The book profits are his blessings to you, however much the worth or however meager. What you do with that money that the lord has blessed you with is the real issue. Take care of yourself and and your family, be sure there is food on the table a roof over your heads. Be sure you are able to provide your children with the opportunities to do great things in his name, if that means university tuition, so be it.Where we fall short is when we seek beyond God’s calling. Do you focus on Prada or philanthropy? Money can be the root of all evil, but it doesn’t have to be. Any excess funds can be donated to causes you feel God is calling you to impact. You could do great things in his name, help many people travel, eat, study, and seek shelter.
Now there are the preachers who drive in Cadillacs and Corvettes, or live in ostentatious mansions, while reaping in the millions from their massive following. Are they evil? No. They are human. Sometimes we forget that even those who are leading us in God’s world are only as human as we are.
Anyway, I hope this helps place some things in perspective.
Thank you for this reply it made some things clear to me and put something’s in perspective.
With this I would like to apologize if my previous blog offended anybody, that was not my intention. It was just a question that came up, not to judge at all.
I’m happy with the reply I received, we are definitely humans and make mistakes (this includes me) I believe our heart is what is important when we serve God and to be faithful with the money he blesses us with doing his work. Money earned this way can definitely bless other people if we use it wisely. For the glory and advancement of his Kingdom and to provide for our families and people in need, nice and fresh way to look at it this way.
I found these verses and think they are a good fit to share with this post.
Proverbs 11:18 – (KJV) The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.
John 15:5 (KJV) I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me ye can do nothing.
Let’s make sure we all stay in Jesus , nothing more important in life. Praise the Lord.
God loves you much❤️
