If you study the lives and experiences of prosperous-minded people, you will find that they have a friendly attitude toward money. On the other hand, you will discover that a more general attitude is that there’s something wrong with having money and being prosperous.
People often discount the importance of money in one breath and yet they admit that they are working very hard to get it in the next breath. they do not realize the cross-current they are setting up in their thinking, which, in turn voids most of their efforts. Through such crossed-up thinking about money, they are working at cross-purposes, and often they will experience a crossed-up result. Remember how we talked about this a few days ago - you have to be consistent in all your thoughts, words and actions.
Money Is Divine
Money is wonderful because it is divine substance; money is good when rightly used. Money is divine because money is God’s good in expression. If this shocks or bothers you, you must examine your beliefs about money. You cannot achieve prosperity if you have old, limiting beliefs about money and prosperity.
Most people are sensitive about their capacity to earn money. In most instances, a person’s capacity to earn money would increase if his attitude toward money were positive and friendly. “Being poor is a frame of mind. Being broke is a temporary situation.” ~Mike Todd
The Good News About Money
Many people are confused about the correct spiritual attitude toward money. The most misinterpreted passages in the Bible is “The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.” (I Timothy 6:10). But the context of this passage reveals that Paul was simply reminding Timothy to teach the people in the city of Ephesus that they should not set their hopes on the uncertainty of riches but on God who gives us richly all things to enjoy - God is the source of man’s supply!
There is nothing wrong with money, or in wanting money. It is a God-given medium of exchange, and there’s nothing evil about that. The moment we let go of those ideas that someone ignorantly taught us years ago - that money is evil - we will find that money circulates in our financial affairs much more easily and more satisfyingly.
