Did you notice? Not one person has given a single chapter or paragraph, or line, or verse about not working for money? Verses about not worrying about money, about not idolizing money, but nothing about working for money. Matt 24 is talking about having your priorities focused and not on working for money...Money was used as an example not the main point....Somebody needs to realize that the Holy Spirit is the teacher, not the intellect.Oh ye of little faith.
Jesus covered your doubt in Matthew 6:25-34 and Luke 12:22-31
Do you have faith that the Creator of the Universe and all the things in it will take care of your bodily needs (food and clothing) if you spend ALL your time building His Kingdom first?
Can any see the correlation between what Jesus was saying to His disciples in Luke 12:33, the large crowds that were following Him in Luke 14:33, and what the early church was doing in Acts 2:45 and Acts 4:34-37; that is:
"All the believers were together and had everything in common. Selling their possessions and goods, they shared with anyone who was in need."
"There were no needy ones among them, because those who owned lands or houses would sell their property, bring the proceeds from the sales, and lay them at the apostles’ feet for distribution to anyone as he had need."
Why would they do that?
But Jesus says not to work for it. - Matthew 6:24 & Luke 16:13
Do you have eyes to see and ears to hear?
In peace and Love
