Dunamis’ Seeds of Destiny 4 March 2020 Devotional by Pastor Paul Enenche – A Character Pillar Called Financial Integrity
Taking what does not belong to you is a symptom of lack of financial integrity.
SCRIPTURE: For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows. 1 Timothy 6:10
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is in money matters that a person’s true character is confirmed or revealed.
Budgetary honesty is a significant mainstay of character. It is in cash matters that an individual’s actual character is affirmed or uncovered. It is feasible for somebody to implore and quick and not have money related trustworthiness. Truly, until a man has vanquished the affection for cash, God has not yet won in his life.
One thing you must trust God to overcome is taking what does not belong to you. Taking what does not belong to you is a symptom of lack of financial integrity.
Now, what are the consequences of taking what does not belong to you? We shall be dealing with four of such consequences:
1 Whatever is not yours does not add to your life; it subtracts from your life.
Adam took the fruit that he was not given, and it subtracted everything from his life – he lost the garden (Genesis 3:17-24).
2 Taking what is not yours will cost you both your future and your destiny.
Gehazi was meant to inherit Elijah’s anointing but he got the leprosy of Naaman instead of the anointing because he took what was not his (2 Kings 5:25-27).
3 Whatever is not yours invites curses into your life.
Stolen money invites curses into your life. (Zechariah 5:3-4). Stolen or fraudulent money is cursed money.
4 Taking what is not yours will cost you your placement in time and in eternity.
