8 Passages To Highlight In Your Bible About Money

I've heard it quoted that there are over 2000 scriptural references to money.  I'm not entirely sure how accurate that particular statement is.  Methinks some of those 2000 references to money might be a bit of a stretch, but there is certainly no denying that money is talked about A LOT in scripture.  

It's time to get out your highlighters, crayola crayons (which is what I like to use) or colored pencils and mark these in your Bible.  I won't be going over all 2000, but here are 8 great passages in reference to money: spending it, earning it, hoarding it, and giving it.



Proverbs 23:4-5
Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom. Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.

 James 5:1-6 
Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are motheaten.  Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the labourers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, crieth: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of sabaoth.  Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; ye have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.  Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you.

Proverbs 11:28 
He that trusteth in his riches shall fall; but the righteous shall flourish as a branch.

Malachi 3:10
 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.

Ecclesiastes 5:10 
He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.

Psalm 62:10
Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.

1 Timothy 6:17-19
Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not highminded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; That they do good, that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate; Laying up in store for themselves a good foundation against the time to come, that they may lay hold on eternal life. 


Phillippians 4:15-19
Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only. For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.  Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account. But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, wellpleasing to God. 19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

Of healing and forgiveness


Recently, I have been challenged by God to let go of things that have held me captive for many years. Things that are contrary to the Spirit and which have held me back from being Christ-like and robbed  me of my spiritual and emotional health. And quite possibly  this has effected my physical health too.

For years I have held resentment towards my ex-husband for the years of abuse in our 25 year marriage. I believe that his abuse and my reaction to it has taken an immense toll on my health, leading me into many of the problems I now am suffering. Medical science seems to back up my theory and I have felt justified in feeling this way.

I also have felt immensely resentful that his partner, who he met just 5 weeks after our separation, came into his life so quickly where as I had to wait 4 long years before meeting my husband Chris. Furthermore, I have been cynical and angry about the way he treated her compassionately during back surgery and family problems but was *never* there for me during all the years of mine.

Suffering from emphysema and putting his house in order, my ex-husband came over to speak to Chris and I at my son-in-law's 30th birthday party. This is something unheard of and I must admit I nearly squeezed Chris's hand off as my ex pulled up a chair beside me.

I had mixed feelings of sadness, regret and relief when he conversed cordially with me, mostly about our children.  If only he could have been like that when we were married!  However, I believe, along with Chris, that he is seeking forgiveness from me and is literally putting things right in these final years of his life.

He has my forgiveness and my pity! But not my love.  Sure, I will probably cry when I attend his funeral for my children's sake. You can't have 4 children to someone and spend a quarter of a century with them and not be affected in some way.  But I could never be married to him again or even see him that often.   I am not that strong.

I know that Christ has done a good work in me that I was able to sit there and talk instead of run at the sound of his voice. But in reality, he can no longer hurt me. The only way he could still hurt me is if I harbour unforgiveness.  I don't.

As I said, God has been speaking to my heart. He has been impressing me that now is the time to let it all go..
I can say that I have forgiven him for sins of the past and though I am not saying that I will ever have a super friendly relationship with my ex, I know that I can at least now meet without the ghosts of marriage and years past looming over me and spoiling  my  todays.

Today, I feel lighter in my spirit and freer! Chris has been telling me over and over words of affection that I have longed to hear. Words of commitment and love that have made my heart glad... He thinks I am a strong woman: I don't know if I am or not...

Letting go of the past is hard to do, but for our sake and the sake of  He Who we love, we should try. I couldn't have done this without the help of the LORD! He is and has been so good to me!  If you have things of the past holding you back, ask God for a spirit that is willing to forgive and let go....

Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but [this] one thing [I do], forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, Philippians 3:13

Serving Christ must begin at home



And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, [the same] shall be last of all, and servant of all. Mark 9:35

In this verse, servant hood is not saying that we must take on the role of doormat or navvy, but that we should be of support to any sister or brother in Christ who needs it. The object of servant hood is not necessarily rushing off to a foreign country as a missionary or selling all your worldly goods to feed the poor, whilst putting oneself on the poverty line.

Surprisingly, servant hood can and should start at home. Our first ministry is our marriage, our children and our home. We serve the LORD best by honouring our husband, loving our children and keeping a home that is fertile ground for raising little seedlings who will grow into mighty trees of Righteousness for the LORD.

I will therefore that the younger women marry, bear children, guide the house, give none occasion to the adversary to speak reproachfully. 1 Timothy 5:14

This is your raison d'etre, or reason of being. If you are a wife and mother, then you are a home keeper to some extent or another. And your influence for Christ is being spoken of in great volumes. For home is a person's beginning, and there one shapes ones' marriage and rears one's children. It is no small and meaningless task.

That they may teach the young women to be sober, to love their husbands, to love their children, To be discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Titus 2:4

When we have raised our children, our first ministry- our marriage still needs to be guarded. And often, in that time, your husband will release you to minister to others outside the home. Again, that can be ministering from home, sharing your life experiences as an older Christian woman as outlined in Titus 2. Or it can be in some outside form of ministry, as long as your husband and home are not being neglected.

The aged women likewise, that [they be] in behaviour as becometh holiness, not false accusers, not given to much wine, teachers of good things; Titus 2:3

It seems clear that God wants us to first raise our children, then to reach out to others in minstry. Having a servant's heart is a necessary prerequisite for this important and challenging role. But the heart attitude should start and end at home. We have no place giving our best outside our home and letting our husband, children and home suffer neglect.

What is important in God's sight regarding the godly woman and her role in life? I believe a key is here.

Let not a widow be taken into the number under threescore years old, having been the wife of one man,Well reported of for good works; if she have brought up children, if she have lodged strangers, if she have washed the saints' feet, if she have relieved the afflicted, if she have diligently followed every good work. 1 Timothy 5:9

The points close to God's heart are:

God
Marriage
Children
Home and hospitality
Love of Body of Christ

As a mother who has brought up 4 children plus a grandchild, I know that the days are too long, but the years too short.  Yet it is in these years that the seeds of godliness are sprouted in your children- the future Body of Christ. Before you can blink an eye, your children will be grown.  It is a fact that mothers of older children, and grandmothers can testify to.

How you choose to serve Christ will effect the future Body of Christ.  We need to nurture warriors of faith with a servant heart.  We need you young mothers to see the beauty of your calling and raise these children unto the glory of God.  And it starts at home.  It doesn't necessarily end there for you- but it must begin there. 

Don't despair that your lot seems to be serving others in four walls that sometimes seem to close in on you.  You are serving the LORD in the best possible way, and you are ensuring the continuation of the Christian faith.  

We need you to do this with a servant's heart and diligence.  It may mean being home more than you would like, but this will only be temporary.  It should be easier when we reflect on God's view of our role and by knowing it is God's Will for women in this present season in your life.

Let's hop in our PJ's and go shopping!



During late night shopping it is not unusual to see young children clad in pajamas being taken round the shops with their parents. This is not a problem for me. But what is a problem for me is seeing the parents shopping in theirs.

Shopping in ones' night attire is becoming more popular, but it makes me feel uncomfortable. Unless you are sharing a hospital room with me or are under 5 years old,  I really don't want to see you in it. Especially in the shopping centre or petrol station.  Somehow, it creeps me out.

I know a lot of people say, "well it's only clothes!"  but it's night clothes and like underwear, it is personal.  I don't like seeing a vast display of bra straps, underpants, or thongs.  I really don't want to be privy to what you wear under your clothes or to bed. 

Also, I don't want my grandchildren or your children seeing this because it exudes intimacy and goes over the boundaries of good taste and modesty.  Seeing these things leaves little to the imagination and is too much information! 

Tesco, a supermarket in England, have banned shopping in pajamas.  I heartily agree. Anyone can take 5 minutes to pull a sweater over their head and to pull up a pair of jeans or a skirt.  Even I, as a chronically ill woman, have never gone out shopping in my pajamas.  I do admit to running into the milk bar for some bread in my slippers. But I wouldn't feel comfortable shopping in my pajamas. Or even going to the letterbox in them.

Why don't I want to be seen out in my pajamas? you ask.  It just isn't seemly for a woman of my age to do so. It goes in line with Titus 2 which admonishes us women to be chaste and pure.  If I parade in my pajamas in public, I feel that I would be dishonouring the LORD.  I don't want to harm my witness. I feel that publicly dressing down like this would harm it. Being modestly dressed will avoid being ashamed.

[To be] discreet, chaste, keepers at home, good, obedient to their own husbands, that the word of God be not blasphemed. Titus 2:5

Behold, I come as a thief. Blessed [is] he that watcheth, and keepeth his garments, lest he walk naked, and they see his shame. revelations 16:15

I want to please the LORD in all I do,  including how I dress. Man looks on the outside. God may know my heart, but man only has my appearance to go by.  If I draw unflattering comments by appearing in pajamas in the supermarket or wherever, I am hardly going to influence anyone to come to Christ.

But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for [the LORD seeth] not as man seeth; for man looketh on the outward appearance, but the LORD looketh on the heart. 1 Samuel 16:7

In all things we are called to propriety, order and decency.  Wearing our night attire publicly displays none of these virtues.  Let all things be done decently and in order. 1 Corinthians 14:40

Happy Thanksgiving!


Charles Wesley wrote this hymn for the first anniversary of coming to Christ.  There is no greater thing we can be thankful for than our salvation.  Desperately lost, bound for eternity without God, Jesus stepped in and worked a miracle.  Thanks be to Almighty God for His forgiveness offered to who believes.


O for a thousand tongues to sing
My great Redeemer’s praise,
The glories of my God and King,
The triumphs of His grace!


My gracious Master and my God,
Assist me to proclaim,
To spread through all the earth abroad
The honors of Thy name.

Jesus! the name that charms our fears,
That bids our sorrows cease;
’Tis music in the sinner’s ears,
’Tis life, and health, and peace.

He breaks the power of canceled sin,
He sets the prisoner free;
His blood can make the foulest clean,
His blood availed for me.


He speaks, and, listening to His voice,
New life the dead receive,
The mournful, broken hearts rejoice,
The humble poor believe.

Hear Him, ye deaf; His praise, ye dumb,
Your loosened tongues employ;
Ye blind, behold your Savior come,
And leap, ye lame, for joy.

In Christ your Head, you then shall know,
Shall feel your sins forgiven;
Anticipate your heaven below,
And own that love is heaven.

Glory to God, and praise and love
Be ever, ever given,
By saints below and saints above,
The church in earth and heaven.

On this glad day the glorious Sun
Of Righteousness arose;
On my benighted soul He shone
And filled it with repose.

Sudden expired the legal strife,
’Twas then I ceased to grieve;
My second, real, living life
I then began to live.

Then with my heart I first believed,
Believed with faith divine,
Power with the Holy Ghost received
To call the Savior mine.


I felt my Lord’s atoning blood
Close to my soul applied;
Me, me He loved, the Son of God,
For me, for me He died!


I found and owned His promise true,
Ascertained of my part,
My pardon passed in heaven I knew
When written on my heart.

Look unto Him, ye nations, own
Your God, ye fallen race;
Look, and be saved through faith alone,
Be justified by grace.


See all your sins on Jesus laid:
The Lamb of God was slain,
His soul was once an offering made
For every soul of man.

Awake from guilty nature’s sleep,
And Christ shall give you light,
Cast all your sins into the deep,
And wash the Aethiop white.

Harlots and publicans and thieves
In holy triumph join!
Saved is the sinner that believes
From crimes as great as mine.


Murderers and all ye hellish crew
In holy triumph join!
Believe the Savior died for you;
For me the Savior died.


With me, your chief, ye then shall know,
Shall feel your sins forgiven;
Anticipate your heaven below,
And own that love is heaven.

How Do You Eat An Elephant?

For many people entering into Christmas is their busiest time of year.  As for me and my house.........we're always busy.  At least I'm always busy.

Right, wrong, or in between, I find myself with a giant to do list and deadlines to finish before mid November.  I'm a little weary and wonder how I'm going to get through it all.

It's like sitting down at an enormous elephant with a fork and knife in hand and being told to eat all of him.

So, how is it that you eat an elephant?

It really is quite simple.


You eat an elephant one bite at a time.  There's no other way to do it.

At times I get a little convicted about how busy I am, but realistically this is a busy season in life.  I've been making a vested effort not to work after sunset, and this has helped me refresh some.

I'm reminded of the words:

"Let us labor for the master
From the dawn till setting sun
Let us talk of all his wondrous love and care
Then when all of life is over
And our work on earth is done
When the roll is called up yonder

I'll be there."

Blessings!
KM Logan

Don't belittle God


As you know from a previous post, I hate chain letters of any sort.... this was on my Face Book wall today.  I won't be passing it on.  Here's what I said in my comment:

I believe God is near to the broken-hearted, His Word says so. But I won't be passing this on in fear that I will be denying Him if I don't. That would be just another form of a chain letter and promotes fear and superstition. My place is secure in Christ because of what He did, not what I do.... LIKE if you agree :D


The LORD [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Psalms 34:18

We serve a powerful, supernatural God.  There is no place for superstition or fear.  He is powerful enough and loving enough not to need our help in making Him known through falsity.  He Is Truth! Don't pass stuff like this on!  He doesn't need cheap parlour tricks to make Himself known. It belittles Him.

Fifty shades of grey: one shade of white


There has been a lot of publication of the trilogy "50 Shades of Grey".  It seems every woman is immersed in  it and most have bought all three books.  Even my daughter, who is not an avid reader, has it on her iPhone.

Everyone seems to be reading this trash. However, I won't be reading them.  What I have gleaned from comments and hearsay is that it is basically "Mummy porn"  A tale of  demeaning sex and sado-masochism.  But most of the young mothers I know are digesting every filthy word of it and jokes abound that by book three, most husbands will be very happy men with an excess of sexual favours in all kinds of manner!

Why won't I read it? you ask.  I won't read it because I value my God and my marriage too much, and  I have self-respect. As a married woman, I owe it to Chris to keep my thoughts and impulses for him alone.  I would hate to be intimate with him and be imagining Christian (or any other man).... Jesus Himself has warned us against this, saying that to look lustfully at someone not your spouse, is adultery in the heart.  He meant this for women as well...

But I say unto you, That whosoever looketh on a woman to lust after her hath committed adultery with her already in his heart. Matthew 5:28

As in cyber sex, and sexy chat room relationships, reading porn stirs the carnal side and weakens the intimacy and trust in the marriage union and pervades into our relationship with Christ. Sadly, many Christian women are getting caught up in this sin. And it is not only the married but the single woman.  Goodness knows, remaining sexually pure and unstained in this world is hard enough without igniting flames that should not be kindled until marriage..

I charge you, O ye daughters of Jerusalem, by the roes, and by the hinds of the field, that ye stir not up, nor awake [my] love, till he please. Songs 2:7

Anything that lures ones' mind away from God or ones' spouse creates an opportunity for sinful behaviour.  The formula for sin begins in one's thought life...A thought = a decision =  an action = sin.  I know if Chris was thinking lustfully about another woman, that it would upset me.  He wouldn't do it to me. Likewise, I won't do it to him.

Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. James 1:15

As a born-again Christian who is redeemed and cleansed by the Blood of Christ, I have too much self-respect- or really, I should say respect of Christ living in me, that I refuse to dwell on sinful things. We are a holy people and have been called to be separate from the world.  

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean [thing]; and I will receive you,  2 Corninthians 6:17

I do not want to waste my energies on thinking about licentiousness. Being human means that occasionally one may have a sinful thought- we won't be perfect until we meet the LORD, but that doesn't mean that we should dwell on rubbish. I prefer to dwell on things of Christ.  However, should we dwell on things not worthy of our Saviour,  then we are instructed to train our thoughts away and bring them in line with God and His Word.

Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;  2 Corinthians 10:5


It is my hope that any Sisters here will bypass these books and any other distractions that take us away from our most important raison d'etre.  Our life is to keep ourselves spiritually pure as we await our Saviour.   So many world events point to His coming soon. We have to stay strong.  In faith. In purity. In Spirit. In prayer.  For we are the Bride of Christ.

For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

Just as you hopefully would keep yourself pure for your husband, how much more so do we need to keep ourselves pure for Him?  We must guard our hearts carefully at all times,  for out of our heart, comes our life.  

Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. Proverbs 4:24

Don't let the world tell you that reading "Mummy porn" is not sin: it is. Our standard for living is not the world's, but God's.   And before you take offence at my words, please know that I too must bring my thoughts into the captivity of Christ.  I don't feed my spirit on garbage. Therefore I won't read 50 Shades of grey.

What manner of people ought we to be then?

But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints;  Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now [are ye] light in the Lord: walk as children of light:  (For the fruit of the Spirit [is] in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)  Ephesians 5:3-9

As the Bride of  Christ, when the Bridegroom comes, I don't want Him to find me being wanton, licentious and lewd. I want to be holy and pure for Him.  He deserves that.  

There may be fifty shades of grey, but there is only one shade of white. I choose white!

Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.  Revelation 3:4

Come back to Jesus


The LORD has laid something on my heart which I have prayed about before I posted. He wants the backslider to repent, and come back to Him!  There is no doubt that the world is getting darker. More and more the Church and Christians are coming under attack.  At times it seems like Satan is winning in his evil.  We are getting depressed and tired. And afraid. And tired of doing good.

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. 2 Timothy 3:12-13

If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy [are ye]; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.  1 Peter 4:14

It is so easy to give in or even, sadly give up! But thankfully for most of us, giving up on Christ is not an option. We love the LORD too much for it to be a consideration...  However, many people are turning away from Christ or are listening to lies of the enemy of our souls, often through the mouths of pastors preaching false teachings in the Name of Christ, tickling the ears of those who don't really check the Word to make sure what they are being fed is scriptural food to nourish the Christian soul. 

For Demas hath forsaken me, having loved this present world, and is departed unto Thessalonica; Crescens to Galatia, Titus unto Dalmatia. 2 Timothy 4:10

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;  2 Timothy 4:3

There is a sense of expectation within the Body of Christ.  Christ is coming soon for His Bride- us.  And although we are told that only God knows the hour,  we have been given guidelines.  The apostasy and the falling away has begun.  Abortion on demand has killed millions of pre-born children,  homosexuals are trying to defile the sacredness of  marriage, many more people are divorcing and the family unit is suffering.  Feminism has helped destroy marriage, motherhood and homelife as well as belittling the woman who desires to serve God through caring for her family. As I can attest, there are more earthquakes.  Sin is abounding and life is cheap for a lot of people.  God is being phased out of schools, workplaces and if possible, homes! The writing's on the wall..

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away. 2 Timothy 3:1-5


Perhaps you have wandered from the LORD because you have been hurt by the world. You no longer trust Him.  However, Jesus Himself told us that in the world we have trouble.  He has never deceived us.  Perhaps you are questioning Jesus'  promise that He is coming again because we are still waiting, but He told us God desires all to be saved for He takes no pleasure in the death of a man...


But take ye heed: behold, I have foretold you all things. Mark 13:23


These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33

It is important that we keep close to Jesus.   If you have lost your first love,  or feel far away from the LORD,  rest assured that He will forgive you.   It starts with repentance.  Faith. Prayer.  And finishes with His Grace. His Mercy. His Love.  His Blood. 


Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me. Cast me not away from thy presence; and take not thy holy spirit from me. Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me [with thy] free spirit.Psalm 51:10:12


The LORD [is] nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit. Psalms 34:18


The LORD redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate. Psalm 34:22

We can't afford to be complacent about our faith. We can't sit on the fence.  The Bridegroom WILL be coming for His Bride... a spotless and pure Bride with no blemish.... every day it gets sooner.... like the 10 virgins, we know not the hour.  Keep oil in your lamp. Turn back earnestly to Jesus, the good Shepherd.

Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. Matthew 25:7


Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, [which is] new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and [I will write upon him] my new name.  Revelation 3:11-12

You don't have just my words, but the Word telling you to return to your first love for the time is short.  May you heed the message.  I am praying for you....in the mighty Name of Jesus!

What Is A Home?


A home is a haven and a place of rest,
A sanctuary where love and acceptance
Go hand and hand with the teachings of Christ,
Where He is invited to dwell by His Spirit,
And rule as rightful Head.

A home is the solid earthly foundation
For God’s Word to be lived out daily
Even in small things.

Home is a place of worship
Where true expressions of faith
And love for God
Can be expressed in the most intimate
Of relationships, the family.

A home is a blessing from the Lord.
May you find the peace and love of God
In your home.
