TOPIC: THE LOVE OF MONEY AND THE CONSCIENCE OF MAN
SCRIPTURE: For the love of money is a source of all kinds of evil. Some have been so eager to have it that they have wandered away from the faith and have broken their hearts with many sorrows. 1 TIMOTHY 6:10 (GNT)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: The love of money kills the conscience of man.
Some years ago, I travelled to a country and a man, a Nigerian, who decided to do illegal business in that country, came to me for prayer.
In that country, I heard that Nigerians were known for doing all manner of things to get money. When this man came to meet me so I could pray for his illegal business to succeed, I asked him what he wanted. He said he was carrying ‘package’ and I should pray that he should reach destination successfully. Instantly, I realised he was referring to the trafficking of drugs. And this was a South American country.
I looked at him and said, “If I curse you now, you will die! You want me to pray for you to succeed in illegitimacy? What kind of useless money are you looking for? As preachers, do you think we are playing with what we are preaching?”
Only the Mercy of God prevented me from cursing him.
At the end, I asked him to kneel down and hand his life over to God.
Can you see what the love of money can do to a person? He was in that country for five years doing an illegal business because of the love of money. May God help Nigeria and Nigerians because of the damage people like that man have caused the image of this country all over the world, all because of the love of money. The love of money or greed, is one of the things that must die in this nation.
As a child of God, there are businesses you should never do because they are bad.
The love of money kills the conscience of man. That is why some people trade in human parts and send other people to their early graves to get money. Others kill, rob and engage in all manner of illicit businesses to get money. Some sell alcohol to men and make these men divorce their wives, thereby rendering their children destitute.
Beloved, do not murder your conscience with the love of money. Do not engage in evil acts to get money. It is possible to be rich without compromising your conscience and values. You can combine holiness with affluence, and integrity with prosperity.
Remember this: The love of money kills the conscience of man.
1. Refuse to kill your conscience with the love of money.
2. Maintain a lively and active conscience by living right.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask that You deliver me from the love of money. Let Your love be shed abroad in my heart, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: The Earth is the largest and densest of all terrestrial planets. If you crunch the numbers, Earth is jam-packed with mostly iron (35%), oxygen (30%), silicon (15%) and magnesium (13%).
I decree your deliverance from the love of money in Jesus’ Name.
