Ecclesiastes 10:19 A feast is made for laughter, and wine makes merry: but money answers all things.

God’s Word tells us that money answers all things. Not some things, but all things. Since this is known, people will go to extreme measures and do something God hasn’t called them to do to obtain money. People will prostitute themselves, sell addictive poison to people in their communities, and work multiple jobs for long hours all to obtain money.

Since money answers all things, it’s God’s biggest competition for our hearts (Matt. 6:24) Money can be the determining factor in our decisions instead of God. If it pays us a lot of money, we’ll do it without consulting God.

There’s nothing wrong with money, but money shouldn’t govern our lives. Give that responsibility to God. Instead of chasing money, run towards The Source of all provision. Run towards God. Seek God on how to obtain money. It may not seem logical or popular, but if God is backing our decision, it’s blessed and the blessing of the Lord brings wealth and adds no sorrow (Prov. 10:22).
