“Ignorance of the law is no excuse for breaking it!” That’s what the police officer is saying when he pulls you over for doing 55 mph in a 35mph zone. Just because you didn’t see the signs posted, doesn’t give you the permission to zoom through the neighborhood. The laws stand for all of us, and apply to all of us, whether we are walking in them with full knowledge, or operating under them in ignorance. It still applies.
Why not start incorporating and operating under God’s spiritual laws over your money? There are some really good ones out there. One of my favorites is The Power to Get Wealth (Duet 8:18)
Go and read it for yourself in your free time. Never mind – I will give it to you now in case you get internet ADD and forget. “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” (NKJV).
So be clear that there are two parts to that verse. First every gift, talent, opportunity and ability you have to create, build or provide of value – has been God given. He is your source. The second critical part of that verse is that He didn’t give you the power just to sit on your lazy boy recliner all fat and full – He blessed you for a reason. To establish His covenant. So you are blessed on a mission. Enjoy what He provides, and look for ways to be a blessing in His kingdom. Find a need and participate in filling it for God’s glory!
You are far more precious than rubies!
