God is the Answer.

By the grace of God, money is not the answer.

I do not talk about basic necessities and having a comfortable pillow for unexpected emergencies or medical cases. If you do not know what ´normal´ is, take the basic salary in your country as a benchmark.

The problem is that when people pursue excess, more than they need, their Spirit dies. This is a fact. They wear themselves out and lose themselves.

´”No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon [money, possessions, fame, status, or whatever is valued more than the Lord].”´ — Matthew 6:24 AMP

The problem in this world is, people try to be self-sufficient and whenever something is put on a pedestal, something is valued more than God, it is fatal. It is fatal, because there is no life in it.

´”(25) Therefore I tell you, stop being worried or anxious (perpetually uneasy, distracted) about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, as to what you will wear. Is life not more than food, and the body more than clothing? (26) Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow [seed] nor reap [the harvest] nor gather [the crops] into barns, and yet your heavenly Father keeps feeding them. Are you not worth much than they? (27) And who of you by worrying can add one hour to [the length of] his life?´ — Matthew 6:25–27
