My Money......Crazy Stock Market!!



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
Recently the stock market plummeted and panicked investors watched thousands of dollars disappear into thin air. Of course in a upturn things could get better. There is nothing wrong with saving but you must remember to not trust in your savings, your stocks, your gold, or your 401k. 
Things happen and wealth disappears. Sometimes greedy tyrants take it away to try to control us. The point is everything we have belongs to God. It is He who gave us the power to gain wealth. Just do not freak out when the market crashes and don't live above your means. Be good stewards of what is entrusted to you. Share and tithe as well. 
Why not stop and give thanks to God for all your abundance. This means whether you live in a tiny home mansion. Just know God is in control and He will take care of you. 
PRAYER: Thanks Lord for all you have blessed me with. Help me to look for legitimate ways to help those going through hard times. In Jesus' name. Amen.
