In Proverbs it says, “Do not weary yourself to gain wealth, cease from your consideration of it. When you set your eyes on it, it is gone. For wealth certainly makes itself wings, like an eagle that flies toward the heavens” Proverbs 23:4-5 (NASU).
God knows the true desires of our hearts. Our purpose for acquiring it needs to be pure. Money can give us status and pleasure. That’s why it is so dangerous to own. As Christians we need to make sure that our purpose for making money is to further Gods kingdom not our status.
