Three reasons for being ineffective
Three reasons for being ineffectiv
What are the three reasons the Word of God is not productive in more peoples’ lives?
Just as a fishing lure is attractive bait for a fish, wealth is attractive deception for a Christian.
“No one can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money.”
Take some time and meditate on the three reasons why the word of God is not productive as found in this passage of scripture: “Still others, like seed sown among thorns, hear the word; but the (1) worries of this life, the (2) deceitfulness of wealth and the (3) desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.” Mark 3: 18-19
Mammon worship comes in many forms of deception. You bow down and worship the god of mammon through your desires and wants. Mammon’s lure and attractiveness speaks: I can give you anything you want. I can make you more attractive. I can give you more power. I can give you success. I can give you security. I can impress people with your wealth. I can give you control. Come worship me the god of this world.
Kingdom living through a life of generosity will break the deception of wealth in your life. Generosity reveals the true condition of the heart. A changed mind from getting to giving will produce joy while honoring God. Generosity is the antidote for greed.
Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Make an investment today of generosity. Godliness with contentment is great gain. The man who desires wealth will never have enough. Seek to have a heart of contentment fulfilled through generosity today.
