In one of the WhatsApp groups formed after Ekklesia, a beloved young man (hello Simon!) put forward a question, “Is saving money/wealth right according to the Word of God?” And as I was typing out my answer, I realized this had become big enough to be a blog and will probably be lost in the deluge of messages in a WhatsApp Group (We all know how that works!). So, here are my thoughts on this question:

I was going through the familiar portion in Numbers, of how Moses struck the staff on the rock in anger as the Israelites demanded for water.

A few insights from my Master came racing to my mind and I thought it’d be better to post it here in my largely unused and gathering-rust blog.

Quote: The Bible

“The Bible doesn’t preach religion; it preaches life. Bible doesn’t preach philosophy; it shows us the simple way to eternity. Bible doesn’t teach us to practice doing good; it shows the Source of goodness. Bible doesn’t teach ‘tit for tat’; it teaches grace, love and forgiveness. Bible doesn’t teach salvation through once own efforts; it clearly tells us salvation is only through JESUS CHRIST!”

These posts are quotes which are ‘quick-to-read’ yet insightful and encouraging in its own way. These are quotes/posts borne more out of my personal experiences, but are not short enough to fit into Twitter’s 140 character limit, but aren’t long enough either to be called a ‘blog-post’.

He did the same with this parable (Matthew 13:18-23), explaining what each of those four ‘soils’ (for lack of a better term) mean. Let’s look at each of these four soils on which the seeds (Word of GOD) fell and what it means for a believer today. Before we get into that, please note that unfortunately, you could find all these four ‘soils’ in our churches today. Before you start looking around in your church, introspect, search yourself, and ask yourself “What kind of soil am I?”
