MASTER THE GOOD SIDE OF WEALTH (1) - ROMANS 16:19-20A

Share

 

 

In Romans 16:19-20a, the bible says, 

“For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil. And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly.” 

 

Everything in the world has a good side and an evil side. Money has a good side and an evil side; sex has a good side and an evil side. As much as Christians are trying to protect their children and/or themselves from the evil side of wealth, they are not becoming wise and adept on the good side. Romans 16:19 says, “…but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil.” And the result will be that “…the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly” (Romans 16:20a). If you are ignorant concerning the good, satan will bruise you shortly. God cannot put satan under your feet in an arena where evil and good are contending and you are ignorant concerning the good and the evil.

 

Sadly, because of incomplete knowledge, the average Christian has become simplistic, being both ignorant of evil and good, always having to operate in the arena of life where they stand no chance due to their lack of knowledge. Do an audit of your mind to identify wrong financial attitudes you may have imbibed as a result of incomplete knowledge or lack of knowledge about finances in the kingdom.

 

PRAYER: Lord, help me to understand and master the good side of wealth as you intended so that I may use if for your glory in the world around me in Jesus’ name. Amen!
