Shocking News From the Bible – Money Answers Everything!

Ecclesiastes 10:19 (New King James Version)

A feast is made for laughter,
And wine makes merry;
But money answers everything.

Many Christians and Non-Christians may be surprised to know that this passage is even in the Bible… but it is.

On the surface, it may sound “materialistic”, “worldly”, or “carnal”.

But notice that the scripture doesn’t say that money is the “right” or “complete” or “final” answer for everything. It simply and correctly says, “money answers everything”.

And isn’t it true that money answers everything?

In general, so many of the problems that we have in life can either be solved or made less stressful for us, by us either having more money, or better money management.

Let’s take a look for a second, and see if this isn’t true. Let’s look at a few areas that many of us are, or have been, confronted with in our daily lives:

Natural Disasters

When natural disasters occur, such as the horrible earthquake in Haiti, let me first say that we don’t know why God allows such terrible things to happen.

What we do know is that, even in the midst of miracles such as the amazing survival stories, that money is always needed to try to lessen the pain for survivors, get aid to them, and ultimately rebuild these communities, cities, states, and nations.

In this situation money is not the complete answer, but it definitely provides a much needed answer.

Marriages and Relationships

It’s no secret that many married and unmarried couples argue about, and often separate, breakup, or divorce over disputes about money. Usually this is the lack of money, or overspending by one or more parties.

A lack of money puts stress and strain on the entire family, as there are always mouths to feed, clothes to purchase, and other obligations such as health insurance, mortgage payments, and college tuition. The list of family expenses seems endless when there is not enough money to go around.

More money and/or better money management can usually provide a much needed answer or solution in these situations.

Church Work

It is a known fact that churches cannot operate without money. We know it’s a known fact, because the church leaders will often be quick to tell you that when it’s time to collect the offering;-)

It is often very ironic that the same church leaders who may spend a portion of, or an entire sermon telling you how UN-important money is in your life… will then turn right around and try to convince you how important it IS that you give as much money as you possibly can afford (or not) to the church.

It’s such a contradiction if we would really listen to what we are saying sometimes.

Yes, money is needed to finance the work of God in the world, so money is an “answer” in this area as well.

Conclusion

If we take a moment to think about it, we can see that the amount of money we have at our disposal affects each and every area of our lives. This the message we should take away from the passage “money answers everything”.

Yes, money does answer everything, whether it is providing aid for a natural disaster, feeding our families, paying for higher education, or financing the spread of the good news of Jesus Christ to all the world.

The sooner we embrace this financial truth, this “bible secret”, and stop fighting against it, then the sooner we will be able to adapt a mindset and lifestyle of financial abundance.

Finance Recruitment Agency – Get a Financial Services Job

Obtaining a financial services job position within the present marketplace has turned out to be a challenge for many jobless individuals in the United States. Although a number of positions are being produced, people are continuing to lose their jobs at the exact same or even higher pace.

As a result, you will find a great number of individuals contending for each job opportunity that is available. At the same time, you will find positions that are not filled simply because an applicant with the desired experience and skills has not applied, or sometimes because the business has delayed the hiring of additional staff.

If you find this is the case, there are a number of methods you can use to locate these job opportunities, such as social networking, researching on the Internet and contacting finance job recruiters.

A lot of job seekers think networking is the very best method to discover a new position, as often managers would rather employ people who’ve been proposed by someone they know. Others prefer to search for employment online. However, since a large majority of financial institutions would rather utilize headhunters to help them locate the right job applicants, this may be your best option.

Networking

If you plan to use networking to find open job opportunities, you need to make an effort to grow and increase the group of individuals in the financial industry that you frequently connect with. You probably have colleagues who are able to connect you with professional associates and job interviews, or perhaps others that can help discover additional connections. Develop a timetable to reach out on a regular basis to each and every individual. You most likely are comfortable getting in touch with several friends once or twice per week, while other people you may get in touch with less often. The key here is to be consistent.

Searching for Jobs Online

Searching for employment online can be fairly easy if you understand how and where to search. You will find numerous job boards that provide a huge number of possibilities, but combing through appropriate listings can not just be extremely time consuming but also discouraging. A good strategy to finding a rewarding job online is to stay current with industry news as well as finding websites specific to the finance industry. Studying the news will help you determine what keywords and phrases to utilize in your job search; exploring the right websites will reduce the quantity of time invested in sifting through all of the results.
