My name is Money

My name is Money and I live in people’s pockets,  wallets, banks to name a few.. Some people decide to store me in their jackets and coats. I come in different denominations and various sizes. I am loved by many and hated by many more. I am attracted to some people and repel others because they don’t  treat me with respect. I will explain my reasons for both later. One reason is  because some do not understand my mission in their lives. Many do not really understand me.


What is my mission, you ask? My main mission among others is as a means of exchange of transactions. With me in your possession you can buy goods and services. I am a medium of exchange.  Without me, goods and services would have to be exchanged by barter and this can prove difficult. I am a tool to achieve a purpose.  When used as a tool I meet lot’s of needs and provides solution to many problems.  I am God’s gift to you. Praise and glorify the giver not the gift. Trusting and serving me only results in fear but if you trust and serve the giver you will live a life of contentment and peace.  As Solomon said in the BOOK ‘money answers all things’  Ecclesiastes 10:19

But money isn’t everything is it:

Money can be a god and it can also be a great tool of freedom. It solves problems and it is used to value many things. What am I to you? Do you love money so much that you will do anything to acquire me. The misquoted scripture never says money is evil. It is the love of money that is evil.   Many people are serving me without realising it and as a result will do anything to get me. Judas sold Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.

How do I acquire you? There are many ways:

  • Give me away and you’ll have more: proverbs 11:24, Strange but true
  • 25 ways you can attract money into your life without stress.
  • Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. Matthew 6:31-33
  • Wealth gained hastily will dwindle, but whoever gathers little by little will increase it. Proverbs 13:11

I hope I have managed to convince you of the importance and relevance of money and most importantly how to increase it.

  1. I think too may people use God or the Scriptures as an excuse to be poor. Sometimes people take it wrong and think being “poor for Jesus” is good. They look at money and think money and all rich people who have more of it is bad.
    I think God wants us to have money, without money, how would the poor get helped or things get done in society? We should focus on how we use our money for good, i think thats the key. good verses!

  2. Excellent article about money! I strongly believe its all about psychology though. You a lot of people who weren’t born with money to all the sudden have will often loose it within a short time period. For example, lotto winners. Somebody gets millions then go’s and buys everything under the sun only to still feel empty inside. There have been investors and bankers who have been known to jump out of windows because they lost so much money. You really need to be the right kind of person before you inherit a lot of money otherwise it will destroy you!!

    • Hi James

      You’ve touched on a very important point there. I have read of the types of scenarios you mentioned.

      It is important that we are mature in ourselves before we get big wins or big inheritances.

      I appreciate your comments.



  3. Thanks for the insight in to money 🙂 To me, money is metal and paper that is there to be earned and spent!

    I do fully agree that money isn’t everything because there are certain apsects of life that just can’t be bought. However, having money does give us choices in life.

    I’m also a huge believer in the law of attraction, so thanks very much for sharing the link and I will definitely follow it up as I want to learn about the ways to attract more money in to my life.


  4. Your article My nave is Money, was very interesting, it has very good points and misconceptions. I fully believe that money will not make you happy and pursuit of it can leave you like Ebenezer at the end of your life.
    I am working hard for my family which of course provides and keeps everyone happy. However money does not make everything easy and sometimes makes it difficult at times.
    I only hope that I have made an impression on my children and they pay their bills first as I have done all my life.

    • Hi Robert

      I would have loved that you elaborate more on the misconceptions.

      I have in way discouraged working hard but working hard only will not make us fulfilled.

      Thanks for your comment.


  5. Kav ;

    Your site is what I dream a site should be, value and life changing , keep up the good work and never stop allowing God to use you..

    Thanks Much, Bruce..

  6. Such a creative article, the title alone was compelling enough. Great job man.

    It’s sad that all of us have to work our butts off to earn money. We spend all our energy and life to get them but as a result, we don’t have time for anything else. It’s sad. Really sad.

    That’s why I choose to pursue passive income. It’s the only thing that will allow me to live my life.

    • Hi Andrew

      Thank you so much, you’ve made my day. I’m glad you enjoyed the post.

      We need to live life to the full and just not chase money.


  7. The title of this post got me hooked immediately.

    You are exactly right when you state that money is merely a tool. It’s not something to be feared or revered. It’s just a thing to be used to trade with.

    I’ve often struggled myself with my relationship with money, but I’m learning all the time and getting better at it. The idea is to learn to attract it and not repel it.

  8. It can buy a bed- but not sleep

    It can buy a clock- but not time

    It can buy a book- but not knowledge

    It can buy you a position- but not respect

    It can buy you medicine- but not health

    It can buy blood- but not life

    It can buy you sex- but not love
