Matthew 6:33 declares, "But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you."

It is noteworthy how that when the modern-day preacher speaks about money, there is an uncomfortable aura in the church of today.


Jesus paralleled a lot of his teachings with money, wealth and treasure. Luke 12 offers a good summary of his attitude. He does not condemn possessions, but he warns against putting faith in money to secure the future.

It is therefore important that wealth is founded on the backbone of our faith and trust in God.

Although Jesus speaks to many aspects of money, he seems to concentrate on the question: What is money doing to you?

It is not evil but it possesses great potential to dominate a person’s life, even diverting their attention away from God; depending on the user. Jesus challenges us to break free of money’s power—and for some that may mean giving it all away.

This is why it is a blessed thing to give when you give you break the power of idolising money and declare your trust in the giver. No true child saves their lunch money today just in case the parents may fail to provide lunch money tomorrow…

It is, therefore, my prayer for you today, may you develop and walk with a Kingdom first attitude…
