In our pressurized society. . .too many believers are seeking an easy-way-out lifestyle by buying into the world system.

In short, they’re doing what everybody else is doing. . .or at least. . . almost everybody else. . .because now an ever-increasing number of believers are tapping into the wisdom of the ages found in God’s Word.

Unfortunately, so many believers follow the “wisdom” of the world when it comes to their personal finances as opposed to following the instructions found in the Word of God and the leading of the Holy Spirit.

People. . .even born-again, Holy Spirit filled, church-going believers. . .tend to value the advice of their banker and financial planner more than they do their man or woman of God.

The Bible is not a book of exceptions, exemptions and excused behavior. It is a book of absolutes.

The Bible says what it means and it means for you to obey without hesitation.

The Bible is not a book of convenience . . . obeying its instructions when you feel like it.

Here are seven reasons to avoid the influence of the world system.

1. Your Interests Are Costing You His Interest

Some years ago, there was a movie entitled The Dirty Dozen. As I was remembering this World War II movie. . .I started thinking about all the dirty tricks of the devil.

I probably could have thought of a dozen dirty D’s. . .tricks of the devil. . .but I stopped after thinking of seven.

1.      Deception

Who deceives you?

Genesis 3:13 says:

“Then the LORD God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?" The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."

2 Corinthians 4:4 in the Amplified Bible says:

“For the god of this world has blinded the unbelievers' minds [that they should not discern the truth], preventing them from seeing the illuminating light of the Gospel of the glory of Christ (the Messiah), Who is the Image and Likeness of God.”

The real tragedy is that most folks who’re being deceived don’t realize they’re being deceived.

Jeremiah 9:6 in the New International Version says:

If you have never dialed into our daily Rich Thoughts For Breakfast 13 minute conference call. . . today you can. We are playing the #1 listened-to-program each week.
