Money, Possessions and Joy

Our ability to enjoy money and possessions is not found in money or possessions. Rather, this joy is found in God alone; therefore, we must depend on God for our enjoyment of these things.

1. Do not be surprised by corruption.

2. Beware of the problems of prosperity.

“Solomon says the more money you make, the more leeches will want a piece of what you have, and ultimately you will watch it go away. … Creditors, family, ‘friends,’ the IRS, and more will consume what you have. Everyone will have a handout to get what you got.” —Daniel Akin

3. Learn to enjoy all that God has given to you.
