Nudge
with Karl Faase
Money is a drug

We often think about money as a tool of exchange, a practical method of buying, selling and doing business. Yet some people's commitment to building wealth and their obsession with money seems to suggest something more is happening here.

UK University professors Stephen Lea and Paul Webley argue that human behaviour towards money can't solely be explained by its usefulness.

They write: "Money isn't just a tool but it also acts as a drug on the mind, changing how we feel. Part of the benefit people derive from acquiring money (is) feeling good... So we chase money partly just for the sake of having it."

This helps us understand what Jesus teaches about money and why we must be very careful in our response to wealth. It's why Jesus says you can't serve both God and money.
