Is Money Spiritual?

Is money spiritual? Can your wealth be affected by your values? Jesus said seek first God's Kingdom and righteousness and all these things will be added to you. Do you think by putting spiritual things first that material things will be provided. Has this been your experience? If so then make a comment below and let everyone know what your experience has been. Certainly the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament) has many passages that speak about wealth. He holds success in store for the righteous, He is a shield to those who walk in integrity (Proverbs 2: 7). The ancient Israelites were promised that God would give them the power to get wealth but it was to establish his covenant. Today we might say it was to do good with.

These days since so many have not gone to Sunday school or had spiritual guidance or have not been taught a code of values, there is a lack of integrity. We have seen this in the disastrous affects it has had on our banking system around the world. You need to have purpose to gain and appreciate money. Money will be attracted to you if you have a righteous purpose for it. What would be a good purpose? To provide for your family, to get your children through college, to buy a house. All these are noble things. Yet beyond that you should also have a cause bigger than yourself. Providing for orphans in Africa or supporting the end to world hunger. If God can get money through you, He will get it to you. When we do what is right by the universe or God's creation, then provision will be there.

You will see in some of the articles and clips this week that people will speak of principles for success and the law of attraction. I think when it comes to the law of attraction it is something that Jesus told us about in the Bible, 'Whatever you desire when you pray, believe you have received it and you shall have it' (Mark 11: 24). If you desire wealth for a noble purpose then you can have it. It will come to you, if you let it flow through you. Give and it will be given to you. True success is to be an instrument for good.
