Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. 1 Timothy 6:17(NIV)
Money worries can consume a person. The cure for some is to get a credit card or play the lottery. That certainly will end problems. Not! Some get desperate and go to illegal measures to obtain wealth. You can always be sure your sins will indeed find you out.
The Bible speaks allot about money. It tells us not to trust in riches. Many times a person may feel secure then a job loss, unexpected medical bill, or stock market crash can cause them to lose it all. If you rely on wealth for security what happens when the cash is not there? God indeed takes care of the "birds of the air" so He will provide for us. We are not to be desirous of another’s riches but to work hard to get our own. Somewhere the Bible talks about not being lazy and providing for your own household as well.
Be able to get to a point where you have true joy whether in a mansion or a tent.
PRAYER: Thank you Lord for the many blessings in my life. Help me not complain about things I do not have as I have you. In Jesus' name. Amen.
