This is the Answer for Everything

Is there an answer for everything? Yes there is, according to the bible. And it's money. Yup, you heard it right. Money is the answer for everything, says God in the bible.
A feast is made for laughter, wine makes life merry, and money is the answer for everything. [Ecclesiastes 10.19]
One day King Solomon was pondering about life and he got this idea when he was inspired by God. Then, feeling the urgency, he wrote it in his book, Ecclesiastes. And we know that all Scripture is inspired by God. God spoke through the prophets and patriarchs. And among things he told Solomon was how money is the answer for everything---everything on earth, that is.

God Talks about Money?

I was mentioning about it the other night to my cousin in an office lobby and he was surprised when I said the bible said it. 

"Huh?" he blurted out, asking me with a stare. "The bible? Where is that in the bible?" I told him where and he got out his smartphone and looked it over. And there it was. He couldn't believe it.

Often, we can't believe it when God talks about money, especially how important it is. We can't imagine God emphasizing money because we think it's improper to do so in the spiritual realms. We think it's greed so we often try to project an image that we don't care about money, or that we don't want it or we despise it, especially when we want to show off spirituality. 

Church trained us to see it that way, so we'd often beg for money (when we send out those solicitation letters to people when we need their money for our church projects) than do a networking business. It's really the height of hypocrisy. We think begging is right. We think hard work doing a legitimate business is wrong.

God Designed Money That Way

God designed life to be like that---that things in life are to be answered with money. And I mean "everything" in life---the physical, social, emotional, intellectual, and even spiritual aspects of life.

You need money if you want to be healthy. Wellness is money and money brings wellness. Organic food costs a lot, for instance. And don't you feel suddenly strong when you get a chance to get a really big sum of money in your hands? Yeah, money sometimes gives healing!

You need money to socialize and connect with people online or offline. You need to buy a good computer, internet connection, camera, and headphone and mic when on social media, for instance. And you need money to meet people in person.

You need money to divert your attention from bad emotions, like do some shopping or see a movie or eat ice cream, for example. You need money to buy books and enroll in a good school. And you need money to wear something to church and buy a bible and give your tithes and offering. Imagine if the church has no money. Even Jesus received support from women in his day [Luke 8.3]. 

Thus, you can't say you don't need or want money even if you are the most spiritual guy on earth. See? Abraham is our father in faith and yet God gave him a lot of money. Faith and lots of money can go together in the spirit. In fact, you need money to fulfill God's work. Having lots of money is not greed. It is spiritual. 

How Money is the Answer

Now, the next question is, how can money become the answer for everything? If you have money to pay the rent but not the electric and water bill, how can it be the answer for "everything"? It's supposed to solve everything, right?

Well, that's why Ecclesiastes also talks about investment. 
Give a portion to seven, or even to eight, for you know not what disaster may happen on earth.[Ecclesiastes 11.2]
In the morning sow your seed, and at evening withhold not your hand, for you do not know which will prosper, this or that, or whether both alike will be good. [11.6]
Jesus has lots of parables about investment in the Gospel. And he defined what investment really is in this parable.
Put this money to work. [Luke 19.11]
Investment is really putting or investing your money to work for you.  Employment and business make you work for money. You often see how business owners cannot leave their businesses to enjoy some good time somewhere because they are tied to them. And employees do not have the money and time freedom to just go anywhere they want. But investors are free because their money works for them.

Look how money grows with investment:
The servant who received the five bags of silver began to invest the money and earned five more. The servant with two bags of silver also went to work and earned two more. [Matthew 25.14-30 NLT]
Investment involves no hard work but it can double your money. And then it starts becoming the answer for everything because it pays for all your bills. Your money takes care of all your bills, your food, the tuition fees of your kids, your car and house payments, your health needs, your leisure and travel, etc.

Most of all, money is designed to take care of all your ministry needs.

But First, You Need Investment Money

But it all starts with saving money. Employees and business people should aim to save for investment money. Investment money is apart from the money you use for your daily expenses. I suggest you set apart money for your tithes and offering and then save some money for your investment.

Employees should then start a low-capital business with big income potential. So should business people. And I strongly suggest you look for a good, legitimate and quality network marketing business. It's the only business today where your small capital can earn big money if you work hard at it. Check out the VIP Marketing business I am presently engaged in. You can join me do it and let's start prospering together. Click this link!

Then, as your money grows from this business, start investing. Soon, your money will start working for you and you have more time doing what you really love doing---like spending more time with God and your family.

Money is Reality

In every aspect of life, there are expenses. And I mean every aspect. And unless you realize that money is the answer for all of them, you will grope in the dark and always wonder why God doesn't seem to answer your prayers. But he has already, in Ecclesiastes. And it is his will that you make your money work for you. Money is a good servant. It is its call from God.

But sad that lots of people choose to serve money instead. Ever seen someone who doesn't want to see a doctor for a checkup because he fears the cost after---and he doesn't want his money in the bank withdrawn or be spent in any way. That's serving money.

Or, the guy walking in the street who has money but doesn't want to buy food even if he's hungry? He'd wait till he gets home and eat the leftovers in the fridge.

Often, people would rather not give money to poor people to save the money for themselves. Or, they'd just pity starving people in the streets but give nothing. To appease their guilt, they'd just "pray" for them. Prayer is a way of getting answers from God, but prayers are not the answer for everything. Instead, you should pray to God for money so you'd have the answer for everything. Get it? That is how God intended things to be on earth.

What Money is For, Really?

Now, if you have invested and gained money from it, what do you do with it? Ordinary people without heaven's insight would keep it for themselves. Keep it in banks and make it accumulate there. But Jesus said, do not store up treasures on earth.

So, what do we do with money? Simple---make it the answer for everything. A lot of people pray to God for things they need. Now, God has given you the answer---your money. It's time for you to share. Make your money the answer for everything people ask God for. That money you gained from investment is intended to be shared with others. That's what Jesus said in his Word.
Sell your possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure in heaven that will never fail, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. [Luke 12.33]
Money is important, but your heart for what money is for is more important. God uses money to test your heart, because people's true character manifests the moment they own lots of money. The same thing with people around you---their true characters appear the moment they see how you have lots of money.

Remember, too, that money is a root of all kinds of evil.

So, you see, this is why money is the answer for everything.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

Here are my secrets on how I get physically fit. Click here.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…
