People do despicable, ungodly, diabolical and dubious things in order to acquire money. Civilization has brought unrest and impatience as regards the acquisition of wealth.
We are in a system that is driven by money. Also, the youths are money-driven. That is why people (including believers) are susceptible to various dubious means of acquiring wealth.
Also, they have downplayed the role of education in building sustainable wealth. That is why there are so many dropouts on the street today, hoping to become billionaires overnight.
Hence, they have resorted to a series of questionable means of getting riches in a twinkling of an eye. This article addresses basic things you should not do in order to get wealth.
Seven Things You Must Never Do Because Of Money;
• Never Harm Others
Beware of the money you will get that will leave others in pain. Getting riches at the expense of people’s joy is absolutely barbaric and inhumane.
Then one of the twelve, called Judas Iscariot, went unto the chief priests,
And said unto them, WHAT WILL YE GIVE ME, AND I WILL DELIVER HIM UNTO YOU? And they covenanted with him for thirty pieces of silver.
• Do Not Betray Your Friends
Now he that BETRAYED HIM gave them a sign, saying, Whomsoever I shall kiss, that same is he: hold him fast.
And forthwith he came to Jesus, and said, Hail, master; and kissed him.
And Jesus said unto him, FRIEND, WHEREFORE ART THOU COME? Then came they, and laid hands on Jesus, and took him.
• Dupe Nobody
Read this scripture;
As the partridge sitteth on eggs, and hatcheth them not; so he that getteth riches, and not by right, shall leave them in the midst of his days, and at his end shall be a fool.
• Say No To Impersonation
To impersonate is to pretend to be someone else that you are not. Impersonation is the act of assuming the identity of another person.
For many shall come in my name, SAYING, I AM CHRIST,and shall deceive many.
• Money Ritual
In some African countries, some youths get wealth diabolically. They consult an herbalist who performs rituals that produce hot and sudden money for them.
These days, famous worldly artistes have reportedly been involved in money rituals to sponsor their dying career.
Should A Christian Try Be Rich
Nevertheless, you should never do this because of wealth. Why?
Deuteronomy 8:18 has the answer;
But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: FOR IT IS HE THAT GIVETH THEE POWER TO GET WEALTH, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Truly, it is the Lord who gives His people power to be wealthy. No devil or god can give you true riches. The devil also gives wealth but it is temporary and life-threatening.
But God’s wealth produces joy and enduring blessing.
• Never Pervert Judgment
A wicked man taketh a gift out of the bosom to pervert the ways of judgment.
Money perverts judgement, especially bribes. Whoever gives you money as a teacher so that his child can pass is your enemy of long life.
• Never Marry Someone Because Of Money
Interestingly, I have heard of a sister who married a brother because the man was wealthy. At the end, the man turned her to a punching bag.
When it comes to marriage, decisions must be taken as directed but the Holy Spirit. You are not to take fleshy decisions.
You will definitely leave a man you marry because of riches when money is no more.
Although, Nabal was wealthy but he was mean and ungodly. Abigeal married a wealthy man but both of them didn’t enjoy their marriage.
1 Samuel 25:3
Now the name of the man was Nabal; and the name of his wife Abigail: and she was a woman of good understanding, and of a beautiful countenance: but the man was churlish and evil in his doings, and he was of the house of Caleb.
In like manner, if you marry a man because he is wealthy. It does not guarantee a blissful marriage. Money is not all you need to sustain your marriage.
• Betraying others to acquire money is another means of acquiring blood money. Blood money is the wealth you get while committing atrocities.
• Harming others to enrich yourself is as bad as killing yourself. It is inhumane to be wealthy while you put lives in danger and absolute torment.
• A Christian should not dupe people in order to be wealthy. It is sacrosanct for you to avoid any money rituals. Don’t pervert judgment and don’t get married because of money.
