Money is a controversial matter.
You might have heard that --
'For the love for money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.'
This is true as it is written in the Bible and you can find this in 1 Timothy 6:10.
The moment you chase money and make it your goal to be rich, then you're missing to do the greatest commandment. That is --
'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the firstand greatest commandment. And the second is like it: Love your neighbor as yourself.’
You might be thinking... "but I need money to provide for my family, for better life, to help others, etc".
So what can you do so you earn money but not feeling guilty for it?
The answer is to have the right intention. Your goal should be not be to earn money but rather to follow God.
God wants you to be His instrument in helping others. And the best way for you to that is for you to use His gift to you, your talents and skills to serve others. In doing so, you bring value to others.
Think about those singers, painters, mathematicians, writers, etc. Each one of us is special on our own way.
So instead of you asking yourself on how you can make money, ask what's your 'gift' and how can you sharpen it. Remember the 'Parable of the Talents' as written in Matthew 25:14-30, God wants you to use what He has given to you.
As you start helping others thru your 'gift', God affirms that He'll bless your good works. You will live abundantly and God is faithful to his promise.
