Though this blog makes a firm stand against the 'prosperity gospel', it must be stressed that money is not evil but neutral. It is the love of money which is evil: “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It is through this craving that some have wandered away from the faith and pierced themselves with many pangs”(1 Timothy 6:10).
For this task, we are thankful for the book of Proverbs, which teaches us how to manage our money for God’s glory.
