THE LAWS OF MONEY - LAW 2: The Law of Money Attracting Money

The Law of Money Attracting Money

And he said unto them that stood by, Take from him the pound, and give it to him that hath ten pounds.

(And they said unto him, Lord, he hath ten pounds.)

For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.

Luke 19:24-26

Unlike the law of magnetism in Physics where like poles repel whiles unlike poles attract each other, the Law of money states that, Money attracts Money.

This is the law that operates in the real world where the rich get richer while the poor get poorer thereby constantly widening the economic gap between the two social groups. Many people don’t know that it is a monetary law that governs the universe and even has a spiritual basis.

In the opening scripture above, Jesus commanded that they take the pound from the unprofitable servant and give it to the servant that already had ten pounds. The people around Jesus being ignorant of this law of money immediately reacted by calling Jesus’ attention to the fact that, that man already had enough money to deserve that additional money whiles they didn’t have anything.

Jesus on the other hand reminded them of this law of money thereby even giving it a spiritual backing.

For I say unto you, That unto every one which hath shall be given; and from him that hath not, even that he hath shall be taken away from him.

Note here again that poverty does not attract money. As a matter of fact, poverty rather drives money away. It takes money to attract money. The kind of meat you bait your hook with determines the kind of fish you catch. Bait your hook with a grasshopper and you are sure to catch a tilapia but bait your hook with a calf and you will be carrying a shark home. Come to think of it, can you in anyway compare the catch of a fisherman using a dilapidated canoe and a cast-net with that of fishing trawler with a giant dragnet?

Sometimes you wonder why an investor will bypass a business that is struggling to survive due to lack of funding and go to invest millions and billions in an already booming and flourishing business. You may be tempted to think it is an economic bias or misplacement but it is not, it is simply one of the laws that govern the accumulation of money.

Let me give you a real life case to enable you come to terms with the reality of this law of money.

Mr. Sam had a small business that needed some financial push to expand in order to weather the economic storm that was blowing. However, tried as he did, he could not get any assistance so he decided to go to the bank for a loan for the expansion. Being a humble man, he thought if goes to the bank, let them know how poor he was and the state of his business he could win the sympathy of his bankers and attract some loan. That never worked either because banks do not give loans based on how poor you are but rather how fat your credit balance is and how oily your balance sheet looks like. That is the game of money making for you.

Mr. Sam went home disappointed and dejected but at least with a lesson well learnt that poverty does not attract money but money does attract money. The next two weeks were the most crucial in the business career of Mr. Sam, he is confronted with the reality of this law of money, he needs the money urgently to save his business from a possible fold up, and he must play the game to the rule in order to attract the loan. An idea flushed into his mind and he acts swiftly.

He went to a business friend and borrowed Five Thousand Dollars ($5 000.00) with which to play this money game. He went and deposited this amount into his bank account and after three days went back to the same bank that denied him the loan at the first time. This time around, the way he appeared in the bank was very different. He was dressed in an executive suit, talking business language and exuding an air of confidence.

When they knew his mission to the bank, he was granted direct access to the manager where the deal for the loan was sealed in less than an hour. Same man, same bank, same mission, but different outcome this time. Why? Because, he played the game according to the rule, that money indeed attracts money.

Consider the life of Job in the Bible. When he was hit by calamity, all his friends and family members including his wife forsook him. Nevertheless, when the Lord turned again his captivity and restored unto him double of his past glory, all the runaway friends and family members came back to him but this time with gifts and presents.

And the Lord turned the captivity of Job, when he prayed for his friends: also the Lord gave Job twice as much as he had before. [11] Then came there unto him all his brethren, and all his sisters, and all they that had been of his acquaintance before, and did eat bread with him in his house: and they bemoaned him, and comforted him over all the evil that the Lord had brought upon him: every man also gave him a piece of money, and every one an earring of gold”.

Job 42:10-11

Never attempt to use your poverty as an instrument to attract money because it will not work for you. In life, your financial status determines the kind of gifts people bless you with.

If you raise your economic self-value, people are compelled to raise the standard of gifts they traffic into your life.

If for example, you like dressing decently in your shirt and tie as a young man, no one who wants to bless you will have the audacity to give you a faded shirt and worn out shoes that he himself will no longer use.

May I then say here that just as money attracts money so also the kind of clothes you wear determines the kind of clothes with which people will bless you.

Even a poor man will prefer blessing a rich man with his money to giving it to his fellow poor man, knowing for sure that he can get the returns back someday. This is what this second law of money is all about.

From my own personal experience, there was a time in my working life that my take-home pay could not take me home let alone to talk about saving part of it. I was always broke and needed money but it looked like money hated me and will not even come near my habitation. This happened for sometime until I one day came across a little book titled, “The Richest Man In Babylon” Which changed my perception about money, which I will deal with in more detail under the Law of Saving.

After reading that book I decided to put aside something every month no matter how small and I realized that anytime I was able to do that, money usually came to me from unexpected sources. However, I never knew why until the inspiration and revelation of this book came to me, and I know for sure that by the time you finish reading this book, your financial life will never be the same too.

The historic visit of the queen of Sheba to King Solomon is worth considering in dealing with this law of money.

“And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the Lord, she came to prove him with hard questions. [2] And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart. [3] And Solomon told her all her questions: there was not any thing hid from the king, which he told her not. [4] And when the queen of Sheba had seen all Solomon's wisdom, and the house that he had built, [5] And the meat of his table, and the sitting of his servants, and the attendance of his ministers, and their apparel, and his cupbearers, and his ascent by which he went up unto the house of the Lord; there was no more spirit in her. [6] And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom. [7] Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: THY WISDOM AND PROSPERITY exceedeth the fame which I heard. [10] And she gave the king an hundred and twenty talents of gold, and of spices very great store, and precious stones: there came no more such abundance of spices as these which the queen of Sheba gave to king Solomon”.

1 Kings 10:1-7, 10

The account states that she brought such amounts of spices and gold that was unequalled by any in the history of Kings in terms of gift and presents. Now, the question to ask is, was it Solomon's wisdom that attracted that volume of wealth or his prosperity?

This is what we will be discussing in the next few pages as we consolidate this law of money that ‘Money Attracts Money’

Bible says the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of King Solomon and came to prove that wisdom with hard questions and riddles. However, when she was coming she did not come empty-handed. The things she brought might be thought of as payment for the answers and to her questions and riddles, but they were not. The account states that the woman heard of both the fame of Solomon’s wisdom and prosperity so she came to prove the wisdom with the questions but the items were to celebrate the honour and economic fame of King Solomon.

And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom. Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: THY WISDOM AND PROSPERITY exceedeth the fame, which I heard.

Wisdom is a powerful thing but wisdom in itself does not attract money unless it is converted into its economic equivalence. The queen of Sheba saw the Wisdom of Solomon, but you and I know that wisdom is not a tangible asset to be seen. This implies that she saw the economic equivalent of Solomon’s wisdom.

Eight Things She Saw That Took Her Breath:

1. Solomon's wisdom (1 Kings 10:4)

2. The house that he built

3. The meat at his table (1 Kings 10:5)

4. The sitting of his servants

5. The attendance of his ministers

6. The apparel of his ministers

7. The apparel of his cupbearers

8. The ascent by which he went up into the house of the Lord

From the above list of eight things that took her aback, only the first one talks of Solomon’s wisdom. The rest have to do with his wealth, which indeed attracted the wealth of the queen of Sheba.

The Queen of Sheba Came With Four Things:

1. Hard questions (1 Kings 10:1)

2. A very great train of camels that bear spices (1 Kings 10:2)

3. Very much gold

4. Many precious stones

From the list of the four things, she came to Solomon with, only the first one was attracted by the Wisdom of Solomon. The remaining three were attracted by his wealth.

The surest proof of this law of money we are dealing with in this account is the fact that the wealth of the queen of Sheba also attracted for her, wealth from King Solomon, which she also carried home to her country.

And King Solomon gave unto the queen of Sheba all her desire, whatsoever she asked, beside that which Solomon gave her of his royal bounty. So she turned and went to her own country, she and her servants.

1 Kings 10:13

If you still are not convinced by the fact that wisdom without a monetary backing does not attract money then;

Ecclesiastes 9: 13-16 is for your consideration.

“This wisdom have I seen also under the sun, and it seemed great unto me: [14] There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it: [15] Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man. [16] Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard”.

Wisdom is good but accompanied by poverty is misery. Consider the highlighted portions of the above scripture and read it like this

a poor wise man, by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man. Nevertheless the poor man's wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard”.

What did you deduce from the new passage? The man was wise but poor so his poverty nullified his act of wisdom and instead of being celebrated and honoured, he was rather despised. If wisdom alone could attract money, this man’s story would have been different.

Let me conclude this chapter on this note that it does not matter your intelligence, knowledge, wisdom, popularity and whatever you have. Making money is a different ball game altogether and until you learn to line up the above mentioned skills with any one of the laws of money, forget it, money will always elude you.

Do not play poor in order to attract money, it will elude you; Play rich to attract money. This is an ancient secret of the rich.

Wisdom is a defense, and Money is a defense:
