Why God DOESN’T want your money

“For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Matthew 6:21)

If you want financial freedom and the windows of Heaven to open, you must return to God. It is not your money that God wants. It is you that God wants. God needs nothing. In Psalm 50:12, God says, “If I were hungry, I would not tell thee: for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof.”

God loves you. It is not what you have that God wants. God wants you. God says, “Turn ye unto me, saith the LORD of hosts, and I will turn unto you” (Zechariah 1:3). If you give your money without giving yourself, remember the adage, “The gift without the giver is bare.”

If you think God is trying to somehow get more money out of you, you are so wrong. In today’s verse, Jesus said, “where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” God calls you to give your money because it reveals the truth about your heart.

What connection have you noticed between your own heart and how you spend your money?

Is there anything God is calling you to change regarding how you spend and/or give your money?
