Covetous

"For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows."

- 1 Timothy 6:10

 

I decided to start an art series on different bible topics. This is the first of a 10 part series.

 

Whatever consumes you controls you. Jesus says, “For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”

 

How we handle money is perhaps the truest indicator of the spiritual condition of the heart. It quickly reveals our fleshly nature. The Bible contains more than 2,000 references to money & possessions. Out of 38 parables Jesus told, 16 deal with how we handle our money. Jesus said more about money than He did Heaven or Hell. This issue is a very important issue in our Christian life. Materialism (Covetousness) is a heart issue.

 

"And He said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses."

- Luke 12:15
