The Love of Money
In Matthew 25:14 of the Bible's New Testament, Jesus told the parable of the three servants. They were all given gifts by their master according to their abilities.
When the master returned from his travels, he demanded an accounting of those gifts. The master praised the two who had multiplied their gifts, but cast the third out into the darkness and gnashing of teeth, because he had not grown his gift. Instead, he had hid it.
Balance's book, The Love of Money not only explains that it's OK to be a Christian and build wealth, it teaches you how to do it effectively while focusing your efforts on serving God.
