Money is good, but never allow it to control you – Gloria Bamiloye.

Gloria Bamiloye, wife of Evang. Mike Bamiloye has taken to her Instagram page few days ago to shed more light on the LOVE OF MONEY.

In a daily tonic episode titled LOVE OF MONEY, Gloria Bamiloye explained using a Biblical character ‘Judas’ who betrayed his master (Jesus) for few pieces of silver and died regretting his actions.

The filmmaker acknowledged that having money is good but allowing to get hold of someone’s life and have a dull control over it is SIN.

Gloria Bamiloye who referred to the 2nd commandment (Exodus 20:3) said if money takes the place of God in one’s heart, it has become a god, and God hates it because He is a jealous God.

She further cited Hebrews 13:5-6 with an explanation that God wants men to live a life free from the love of money and also be contented.

She added that the pathway to freedom from the love of money is solely believing and relying on God who blesses the works of man’s hand.

In her words;

“Love of money
Matthew 27:5 NKJV
Then he threw down the pieces of silver in the temple and departed, and went and hanged himself

Money is good to have, but don’t allow it to control you, as it can replace the love of God in your heart, and God can be Jealous.

He wants to be in charge of your life.

The love of money took hold of Judas, leading him to betray and sell his master and eventually take his own life.

Money is often considered the root of all evil (Hebrews 13:5-6).

Hence, God advises keeping your life free from the love of money and being content with what you have, for He has promised, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” 

You will be free from the love of money when you believe what God says about your finances. When your faith is not in what you have in your hand but in God’s blessings and provision.

When you don’t rely solely on your hard work but trust in God, who will also bless the work of your hands.

Then money will become your servant, and you can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” (Hebrews 13:6).

Prayer: Lord Jesus, you are my provider. May I never replace your love with material wealth in my heart, in Jesus’ name.
