Money Cannot Buy Love And It Is A Good Thing in 2022


February is known as the month of love, and February 14th is celebrated as Saint Valentine’s Day. 

Over time, the word “love” has become a tool of deception rather than what God intended it to be. True love comes from God, and His Spirit teaches us how to love and accept one another. 

Today I will touch on one of the things that have bothered me a lot in our evolving society – money and love, or let me put it straight as people say – “that money cannot buy TRUE love”. I say “true” because money can certainly buy you deception, lies, and falsehood.

Songs of Solomon 8:7 (MSG)

"Love is invincible facing death and danger. Passion laughs at the terrors of hell. The fire of love stops at nothing- it sweeps everything before it. Floodwaters can’t drown love, torrents of rain can’t put it out. Love can’t be bought, love can’t be sold- it’s not to be in the marketplace. "

There you have it- King Solomon, the lover of all time have said it all! MONEY CAN’T BUY LOVE. Love is an action. The only example of how to love won’t be found in books, videos or preaching. It is found in our Heavenly Father –God the Lover.


Loving God’s way is about giving your best and expecting nothing in return. John 3:16a says “this is how much God loved the world: He gave his Son, His one and Only Son.” He gave us Jesus Christ when we were still sinners, it was a big risk, not knowing if we will accept Jesus, yet hoping that we do, so we come into a love covenant relationship with Him. It is about hoping for the best in, and for someone.


The idea that if you splash on your Wife, Husband, Children, Boyfriend, Girlfriend etc., can induce them to love you is a lie from the pits of hell. When you operate in love God’s way, giving of yourself and your resources becomes a way of life and becomes more meaningful to both you and the receiver- remember the Word of God says it is more blessed to give than to receive.


We must submit ourselves to the Holy Spirit daily so He works in us to love God’s way. That’s the only way to love and be joyful in spite of the receiver(s) attitude. Paul gives us a definition of love God’s way in I Corinthians 13 (Please read the Message translation)- my best bit of this charge by Apostle Paul is found in verses 3 “If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I have gotten nowhere. SO, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.” Money can’t buy love, rather with all the money you may have, you are bankrupt (broke) without love.
