Key Verse: Verse 5 – “Now therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts; Consider your ways.”
Key Words: Consider your ways
There is an old saying that goes like this, “If money talks, all it ever says to me is goodbye.” But you know, money does talk. How you spend your money and how you feel about money says a lot about you. Let me show you.
Your money tells others where your heart is. Matthew 6:21, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
Your constant pursuit of money tells others where you are spiritually. I Timothy 6:10, “For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith.”
Your money tells others about your obedience to God. I Corinthians 16:2, “Upon the first day of the week let everyone of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come.”
It tells others about your compassion. James 2:15-16, “If a brother or sister be naked, and destitute of daily food, And one of you say unto them, Depart in peace, be ye warmed and filled; notwithstanding ye give them not those things which are needful to the body, what doth it profit?”
It tells others about your priorities. Haggai 1:4-5, “Is it time for you, O ye, to dwell in your ceiled houses, and this house lie waste? Now therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, Consider your ways.”
It tells others about your love for God. John 1:15, “If ye love me, keep my commandments.”
It is a command of God that we give and when we fail to do so, it demonstrates our lack of love for God.
- ✞ Be a giver, not just a talker.
