money isn't everything

1 Peter 5


Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight [thereof], not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind;

The instructions to take care of the Lord's people not for filthy lucre (not for impure profit), made me think of how we shouldn't think too much of money.

For example, we shouldn't think that if we just offer a certain amount of money to other people, that they must then help us out like we want. We should recognize their right to say No. If they do say No, we shouldn't give them a hard time for it like a slave-driver. Maybe we weren't offering enough or something, even if we thought we were.
