Cold Cash: Money, what’s the deal?
By Ben Mwine:
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love; love for money. Well that's the reality of the world we seem to be living in right now.
You probably already know that Jesus talked more about money than he did about anything else. That's how much of big deal money is, or rather shouldn't be but we don't seem to get it. It is practically impossible to go through a day without thinking about, worrying about, looking for or spending money in one form or another.
I've been planning to pen some sort of series about faith, hope and money and how they intertwine. So you may consider this a preview of sorts.
A number of questions have been running through my mind regarding money. How much is enough? Does having a lot of money change people? How and why? What is it with men being insecure when they are broke? Is it possible to be rich and humble at the same time? What's the relationship between love and money? Is it really possible to get the former without the latter? Is it possible to be truly happy without money? If so how come no one is preaching that? How does the congregation of a church in Uganda of all places manage to give an offering of $1 million in the space of a few weeks?
What questions do you have about money and life? I'd like to hear your thoughts.
