Apostle Grace Lubega
Ecclesiastes 10:19(KJV); A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.
Money answers a believer. It does not command or have the authority to question you.
This is because God has placed you in the position of master and money in the position of servant.
Sadly, there are Christians who reverse this order and place themselves at the command of money.
How do we know when money commands a man?
It changes his values, his attitude and behaviour for worse.
Before money graced his pockets, he walked with humility and spoke with grace to friends and relatives. Now that he has a bigger account balance, he walks around on a high horse and cannot be bothered to recognise lesser mortals.
Before she got a big break in business, she did not mind doing the menial jobs in church such as cleaning up. Now that she has been elevated, such tasks are surely beneath her.
In Psalms 62:10, God cautions us and says, “if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.”
Never be too rich to serve. No matter how much increase comes your way, stay authentic. The more God blesses you, the humbler you should become. Let money answer to you instead of commanding you.

GOLDEN NUGGET: Money answers a believer. It does not command or have the authority to question you. This is because God has placed you in the position of master and money in the position of servant.
PRAYER: Father, I thank You for this Wisdom. I know that You are increasing me every day in every area of my life. Even as the blessings overflow, I choose the path of humility and never set my eyes on these riches but on You, the true beautifier of my life. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
