Earlier this month I taught a message on Money. During my research I found some great quotes that made sense to share here.
As long as you want anything very much, especially more than you want God, it is an idol.
The thieves don't always poke a pistol in your ribs. Most of our assets are not taken with a pistol but with a pencil—just like that. Clarence Jordan
A person is no fool to give up what he cannot keep in order to gain what he cannot lose.
I think everybody should get rich and famous and do everything they ever dreamed of so they can see that it’s not the answer. -Jim Carey
Never put your security in something that can be taken from you. -Rick Warren
Greed is not a financial issue. It's a heart issue. - Andy Stanley
Money has never made man happy, nor will it, there is nothing in its nature to produce happiness. The more of it one has the more one wants. - Benjamin Franklin
Money cannot buy peace of mind. It cannot heal ruptured relationships, or build meaning into a life that has none. - Richard M. DeVos
I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess. -Corrie Ten Boom
If your heart’s crammed tight with material things and a thirst for wealth there’s no space left for God. -Ian Morgan Cron
