Jesus said you cannot serve both money and God and gave a story about the rich man who lived comfortably and beautifully and than died while the wounded victim at his gate died and received everlasting peace.
But Abraham was wealth and David was powerful and Solomon was respected and Esther was beautiful and Deborah was obeyed and Moses was miraculously empowered, so why is money bad?
I think it relates to the money brain. You can have either month or poverty or neither riches nor poverty, but you cannot be bound emotionally or mentally to your financial situation: You must be bound to the notion of goodness, and virtue, and seriousness, and service, and kindness, and humility and respect.
Think of it as two guys standing on a dirt road, one guy is wearing the shoes of love and faith and his soul remains unharmed, while the other is barefoot and his soul is scraped and bruised and wounded and his ligaments are distorted and malnourished, this is why it’s okay to have money when your soul is not bound to the money because money should serve your God and your family, your God and your family should not serve your money.
