Topic: Money [ Open Heavens for Teens 10 February 2019]
Memorise: “For the love of money is that root of all evil:” – 1 Timothy 6:10
Read: Proverbs 13:11
11 Wealth [not earned but] won in haste or unjustly or from the production of things for vain or detrimental use [such riches] will dwindle away, but he who gathers little by little will increase [his riches].
Bible In One Year: Leviticus 10-12, Matthew 26:1-19
Money is a good thing, but it can be terribly dangerous to love it. Many people have been destroyed in the past because of their love for money.
Money has made many teenagers that would have been very responsible to the society become nuisances. Some boys have gone into yahoo yahoo (cyber fraud) while some girls are dating old men for money. Don’t trade your destiny for money. Don’t be deceived by the glamour around. I have lived old enough to see that those who get money through questionable means don’t live to enjoy the money; some die untimely, some develop big problems that make it difficult to enjoy their money while others become mysteriously poor later in life.
Don’t let anybody deceive you by introducing you to a means of getting quick money, it is a trap of the devil to destroy you; run!
There is no need to envy your mates who are throwing money around; he who laughs last laughs best. Stay focused on your education, develop your talents, remain close to God and very soon, you will be wealthy. You will be a guest speaker at international events, holding very influential positions in the world. Then, you will be glad that you did not fall for the lure of money.
Father, please help me never to love money in Jesus’ name
1.There shall be showers of blessing
This is the promise of love;
There shall be season refreshing
Sent from the Savior above
Showers of blessing,
Showers of blessing we need;
Mercy drop ’round are falling,
But for the showers we plead.
2.There shall be showers of blessing
Precious reviving again;
Over the hills and the valleys,
Sound of abundance of rain.
3. There shall be showers of blessing
Send them upon us O Lord
Grant to us a refreshing;
Come now and honor Thy Word.
4. There shall be showers of blessing
Oh that today thy might fall,
Now as to God we are confessing,
Now as on Jesus we call!
