Your Life… Don’t Waste It!
Check out this sobering video with speaker John Piper, and meditate on how you are using the money God has given you. Are you using it in such a way that shows that God is your God and not money? Or does the way you use your money show that money is your god and not God?
Jesus said: If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? (Luk 16:11) Have you been faithful with your money -becuase it could determine your eternal destiny. How you manage it could have a determining factor for you between Heaven and Hell! -It’s not that money can save you, or damn you, but how you manage it proves what’s really in your heart, and if you are living in luxury, storing up treasure on earth, selfishly indulging in this world’s goods, then there is a very good indication that your heart is not with Christ in heavenly places, but still attached to this world, thereby showing that you’ve never been supernaturally transformed by the power of God’s Holy Spirit in the new birth and received the new life from the age to come. Again, are you faithful with the unrighteous mammon, because if not, Jesus no doubt will not trust you with the true riches of the Kingdom to come.

No man that warreth entangleth himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier. (2 Tim. 2:4)
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon. (Mat 6:24)
