Being A Good Steward

Money

Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming on you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workers who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. You have condemned and murdered the innocent one, who was not opposing you. (James 5:1-6 NIV)

There is no sin against having money.  However, if we gained the wealth through dishonest dealings then all of our possessions will become worthless.  We are to be good stewards of the material blessings that we receive.  We need to be honest in all of our contacts.  If we have people working for us, even if just the neighbor kid mowing the lawn, we need to give them an honest wage.  Life is short, we may be here one day and gone the next.  Share your blessings with others.
