Money matters seems a broad topic. Well, in me I see to it that i set aside my tithes and offering to God first. It is because the secret of blessing is by being obedient to God.

I would never do anything against my morals for money. I would rather work very hard for a small amount of money, if that's what it took to survive.

I would never lie or steal to get money. I must admit though, my life for my family would be a lot easier if I had some money. My son has a disability and is seriously ill. We dream about winning the lottery all the time and getting a house where he could go outside without having to go down three flights of stairs.

It like selling life to buy death. Selling peace to buy trouble. I'd rather not, may God keep me from getting into trouble.

Money is never the answer to everything in life. We must be very careful how we acquire wealth because the holy book says that the love of money is the root of evil. Money must be acquired through genuine and decent means.

Money can not but happiness or peace of mind. You can beg, borrow or steal large amounts of money. But you are left with guilt, debt and the fear of getting caught. The only thing I would do for money is work a job. That is the only way you can enjoy it.
Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him.

The love for money opens a gateway to multiple evil. It's actually the root from which evil nourishes. It comes with power, pride, hate and love for all the wrong reasons. Though money answers all things, it won't benefit killing, or lying for it.

If you are a Christian then you understand that stealing, lies telling and murder are altogether sins, whether for money or whatsoever. So I don't see what can push me into those things, not even money. Money truly is the root of all evil so I stay away from any pursuit for money that will compromise my core values as a Christian.

Money could either be a curse or a gift. It is a curse if you let it rule over you and it is a gift you can manage it for the greater good.

Anything legal, but if my child was starving I think I would go further. I think the Bible says that stealing food is not a sin if a man has been starving for two days. If not the Bible, then I read it somewhere else. Can anyone enlighten me? Otherwise one can always hold a signboard at the traffic light if you are not chased away by those who have booked the space first.

Committing murder to obtain a quick payday, stealing or conning someone out of their money...I just couldn't do it. Not in the name of greed. It is an easy thing to steal but the risks out weight the rewards at the end of the day. Plus, I look at it from the stand point of this - you're setting yourself up. Once you cross that line and murder someone or steal from someone you've painted a mark on your back. It may not be today or tomorrow or even a year from now before something comes back on you but it is coming sooner or later.
I agree,we should never compromise our morals for things like money,it wont last and we will be sucked into a dark place where you can't get back from.

Yes ofcourse . Our values don't allow us to do sin for money ( in any religion)
