TOPIC: EXAMPLES OF EVIL MONEY
SCRIPTURE: Woe unto him that buildeth his house by unrighteousness, and his chambers by wrong; that useth his neighbour’s service without wages, and giveth him not for his work; Jeremiah 22:13.
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Evil money is a killer of destiny.
It has been established that proceeds of fraud and corruption is evil money.
Let me give examples of evil money which are proceeds from fraud and corruption.
A mechanic buys vehicle parts for Forty Thousand Naira, but tells the owner of the car that he bought them for One Hundred Thousand Naira. That extra sixty naira is evil money.
A government official gives a contract to a contractor for 500 Million Naira, but tells the contractor to quote 750 Million Naira. When the contract is executed, the government official takes the 250 Million Naira. This is why the economies of most developing countries are in a shambles. Some of them are struggling and stagnated despite being very rich in terms of natural resources endowment. The 250 Million Naira that the government official gets out of fraud and corruption is evil money; it has no future.
People request for fake or blank receipts in the market so they can write any amount of money as the cost of an item in order to share the extra money with the seller. This is evil money.
If you sell items in the market, do not allow anyone ask you for an empty receipt because if you do, it means you are part of their evil. Do not be part of this generational degeneration.
Evil money is a killer of destiny.
Beloved, do not be part of the moral decadence of this generation; let your character contribute to the restructuring of the system.
REMEMBER THIS: Evil money is a killer of destiny.
1. Shun fraudulent practices. Avoid all forms of falsehood in business.
2. Make up your mind to be straightforward in all your dealings.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to be straightforward in all my dealings. Help me never to yield to the temptation of partaking in fraud and corruption, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
FOR FURTER UNDERSTANDING, GET THIS MESSAGE: The Tragedy of Evil Money.
QUOTE: Continuously ask the Lord to destroy the desire for illicit and fraudulent money in your life.

DAILY READING: Jonah 1-3.
AMAZING FACT: An ostrich’s eye is bigger than its brain. This could be why the bird often runs round in circles when trying to escape predators despite its fast running speed.
In the Name of Jesus, the grace for contentment is released in Jesus Name.
