I have to admit. Sometimes money stressors overcome my life. I’m sure that most of you understand this. As college students, we are often overcome by the amount of student loan debt we are amassing on top of the everyday expenses that seem to add up much quicker than we anticipate. Not to mention the unexpected expenses like car repairs and books that cost as much as a small library. When we let these worries encroach on our thoughts several times a day, we lose sight of what’s really important. We forget about all of the blessings we receive from the money we spend like a priceless education, never knowing true hunger, and the company of friends and family. Unfortunately, society runs on money and so much value is placed on it, it is a way of stratifying us as people. Now, here’s the good news. In God’s eyes, our value has absolutely nothing to do with the amount of money we have or will make in the future, instead our value is His unconditional and unfailing love for us. Money is meaningless in God’s Kingdom. The power of money on Earth is a truth, but when we focus on God, the stress associated with it need only be temporary, for we know that in the end it has no value.
“Happy are those who find wisdom, and those who get understanding, for her income is better than silver, and her revenue better than gold.” Proverbs 3:13-14
