SCRIPTURE: For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1Timothy 6:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: All possessions acquired with evil money are nothing but evil treasures.
It has been confirmed that any money that someone gets out of evil practice is evil money; it is unrighteous money.
For example, there are people who drive evil cars, dress in unrighteous clothes, live in ungodly houses because the money that was used to purchase those things were proceeds of evil practices.
All possessions acquired with evil money are nothing but evil treasures. For example, a person who is dressed with clothes purchased with evil money may look handsome or beautiful outwardly, but he or she is ugly inside and appears repulsive to God.
In Deuteronomy 23:18, the Bible says,
Thou shalt not bring the hire of a whore, or the price of a dog, into the house of the Lord thy God for any vow: for even both these are abominations unto the Lord thy God.
A dog figuratively represents the spirit of immorality.
In Leviticus 19:29, the Bible also says:
Do not prostitute thy daughter, to cause her to be a whore; lest the land fall to whoredom, and the land become full of wickedness.
Apart from the proceeds of prostitution or fornication, other examples of evil money are proceeds from bribery, corruption, armed robbery, ritual killing, the sale of alcohol, tobacco, dangerous drugs and other harmful products whose consumption leads to people’s destruction. When a person markets or sells products like Cocaine, Heroin, LSD (Lysergic Acid Diethylamide – a synthetic crystalline compound which is a powerful hallucinogenic drug), Indian hemp or Marijuana, Dry Gin, Lager beer etc. that destroy people’s lives, the proceeds from these products is evil money.
Beloved, do not do evil to get money; such money is evil, and it can add nothing but destruction and sorrow to your life.
Remember this: All possessions acquired with evil money are nothing but evil treasures.
1. Refuse to go after evil treasures.
2. Do not get money in dubious ways; work with your hands and trust God for legitimate ways of getting money
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to work with my hands to get legitimate money. I refuse to indulge myself in evil practices for money, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
