“Money Will Not Buy Happiness”


Money cannot buy health or save

someone’s life. The Bible says that we are to seek the true riches of God, not

the riches of this world. His riches are things that money cannot buy. How can

money deliver a wayward teenager from drugs and sin? How can money buy peace in

our souls in the face of fear all around us? How can money save a soul from

for them, instead of asking God how they can serve Him. We cannot seek money

and God at the same time.

shall give you that which is your own? No servant can serve two masters: for

either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the

one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and money” (Luke

break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be
