There several different ways how money can be and can become an object. One scenario is if you needed funds back had a lack thereof, then that creates financial challenges. The second scenario is, if you have the funds available and you have access to it; to do want you want to do without hesitation of wondering where the funds would come from. Another scenario is if you have hired someone for certain services and have not compensated them according to the agreed amount for their labors, but you have withheld their wages, then this is fraud. James gives and ample warning to the rich who use these negative business transactions. James 5:1-6. We are to become wise stewards of all God has entrusted to us.
There is nothing wrong with having more than enough in material wealth. However, if the use of your financial status are not benefiting the need others, then as someone who has more than enough, you have missed the mark, because it is more blessed to give than to receive. Acts 20:35. Back in the early 70’s the American pop group the O’Jays had a smash hit record titled “For the Love of Money.” “It will keep on changing up your mind,” were some of the lyrics to this particular song. Don’t let money change or fool you; it do what it does, come and go.
Money itself is not the problem; it is a great tool to have access to, we cannot do without it. “For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” I Timothy 6:10.
