In some ways, I do think I am a little selfish. There are so many people that are very selfish about their money. I find myself to be only a little selfish about money. I find myself bragging about my paycheck to coworkers or going out and spending a lot of money on clothes and showing that off as well. However, I have friends/coworkers that make a little less than me and every time I say something about money, she says, "I have $7 in my bank account right now, but I'm not broke, I'm blessed." That is the type of attitude I want to have about money. I have been trying ever since she has told me that to stop with the bragging and showing off, and saving my money for something good for either her or other people who are in need of money. How can you change your consumer behavior, in general, and your spending, in particular, for the better? I think if I change my behavior to use all my extra money for people who are in need, or for God's Kingdom, I will be blessed even more. It is a really great feeling to give money away and make someone happy in that way, just because they are in need of some money. Maybe there is someone at the grocery store that needs four more dollars to buy all their groceries. Instead of watching that person struggle to figure out what to not buy, I will give that person the $4. This will not only make me feel good and make that person grateful of my gesture, but maybe that person will see something in me that they do not have, but want.

Angela, Why do you think the dishonest manager gets praised? Do you think that is right? What would you have done if you were his master? Dishonest managers get praised for various reasons, but from my own personal experience with my manager there are two reasons that come to mind. She has the employees fooled, and she rules by intimidation which also could be defined as bullying. The employees fear for their job, as I do sometimes. It needs to be realized that Satan dwells in the dishonest manager and affects the workplace in every aspect. Employees should realize this if they are Christians as I am, and make decisions that their belief or convictions are not going to be compromised, and that God will be the avenger and make things right. Faith and prayer is key. Do you agree that wealth is a double-edged sword? What good things, and what bad things, could it do for you? Wealth can be a very powerful thing. It can make a person greedy, happy, selfish and even sad. There are those that are envious by others wealth. Wealth can have many positive and negative things in our lives. First, the positive affect that wealth can have on us is to acknowledge or remember how we attained our wealth, and be thankful to God for this blessing. We should use this blessing of wealth to share with others. This could include our community and our church. A good example of this are mission trips that involve traveling to foreign countries to help those in need, getting involved with those that are less fortunate and poverty stricken. Another example would be helping working parents that are in need of assistance for their children, especially in the educational field. Wealth could help in supporting after school programs that would help the children from being alone at home, which would keep them off the streets, and being exposed to negative behavior which would influence their decisions. I Timothy 6:10, "For the love of money is the first step toward all kinds of sins. Some people have even turned away from God because of their love for it, and as a result have pierced themselves with many sorrows." The negative effects that wealth can have may result in making wrong choices or decisions on how the wealth is used. First, we must remember how we attained this wealth. It could have been by deceit, greed, or selfish ambitions. God does not honor this type of wealth. It contributes to taking advantage of others, or not helping others. It's all about meeting our own selfish needs or desires by accumulating personal things such as, expensive cars, lavish homes, extravagant trips, or anything that we can consider necessary in order to be happy. In conclusion, we should always have God as the center of our life. He is our happiness and wealth. Luke 12:34 states, "Wherever your treasure is, there your heart and thoughts will also be."
