He that is greedy of gain troubleth his own house; but he that hateth gifts shall live. Proverbs 15:27 KJV
Can you be bought? For how much? If Jesus bought you for a price, you’re not for sale to anyone.
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20 KJV
Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men. 1 Corinthians 7:23 KJV
Integrity demands loyalty. The Lord’s steward must be found faithful.
Let a man so account of us, as of the ministers of Christ, and stewards of the mysteries of God. Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful. 1 Corinthians 4:1-2 KJV
We are not called into covenant with the Lord of the Harvest to satisfy our greed. We are called to kingdom building. Our call is to reach the lost and disciple the church.
When you put God and His kingdom first you will prosper. Such is the reward of the diligent.
Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:31-33 KJV
