Oh hello Monday, that you already?
I’m getting the feeling that Monday Motivation is going to come from the Word now. I don’t know, I like the idea of starting the week off on a Holy note. I mean, why not? I got a chance to listen to an old pastor preach yesterday, and I’m glad I did because the message was definitely one that I’m sure is relatable to many.
“For the love of money is the root of all evil.”
He said that a good name is more valuable than the wealth of the world, but people will do crazy things for money. He said its okay to have riches, but we should spend more time making decisions that won’t tarnish our names, challenge our ethical boundaries or damage our repuatations. When you’re gone, all that’s left of you is your name, your integrity, your character and the impact you’ve had on the world. That’s far more valuable than anything tangible.
As I reflect, many of my past and present problems arose as a result of ones ability to sacrifice everything for money and the choices of some to place the love of tangible things before God, family, and friends. Can you relate?
During your week remember in your endeavors to take with you a grateful, humble spirit and leave behind a spirit of greed and indulgence. In the end what matters is the person you are and your legacy.💋
