What does God REALLY think about money?

"If you want to know what God thinks of money, just look at the people he gave it to." -Dorothy Parker

From Oprah Winfrey to oppressive leaders of third-world countries, money and financial opulence are in the hands of individuals who some would consider good and others evil. I'm sure there are people and organizations who you believe should/shouldn't have more money. Well, how much does God really care about money and who has it? There's an ancient scripture that says, "God rains on the just and the unjust." Which means that God/Universe provides abundance to good people and not-so-good people.

So, if you're not making the money you want in your business-- it's not God's fault or the Universe's fault. It's not even your fault. You just weren't taught the true nature of abundance (or the strategies of successful business owners). You can't be blamed for that.

God (Source Energy/Universe) is the source of all abundance-- including money. Money in and of itself isn't evil. Money is neutral. For years, I grew up hearing the saying, "Money is the root of all evil." This false statement pervades the consciousness of many people around the world.

Money is energy. It's not good. It's not bad. It's a tool that is used as an exchange for value. When I started my first coaching business many years ago. I created and published a few eBooks to help women discover their life purpose. I charged $5.00 for each book. NO ONE bought them.

I was devastated! And really, really sad. I thought to myself, "Here I am giving my heart to create these resources for women who NEED this information-- and they're not buying them. How can this be! They'll spend $50+ on a pair of shoes-- BUT NOT $5.00 FOR MY eBOOKS!" 

I questioned God. I questioned my value and worth. I questioned whether making money was a spiritual thing to do. I couldn't understand why my best efforts to help people were failing. It took a few more years, but I cracked the code of the "inner game of abundance." I finally broke free from my limiting beliefs and behaviors around money.
