True Wealth ❤️
Earlier my husband and I were talking about the things we wanted to do, we thought if we do this and that we could get this and maybe we should buy this and that and go to these places and we stopped because we were suddenly reminded these two words:
It was part of yesterday’s sermon at church. People want so many things, plan their lives the way they want, we are never contented and satisfied. We think we are secure if we have money, insurance, a house and so on.. We put our security on things, on people- when all these fail and disappoint. Oh what FOOLS we are to think we are wealthy when we have money and material things when what we really need is to be rich towards God! That is true wealth! And when we have Jesus- we have everything.
Luke 12:15,20-21 Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”
1 Timothy 6:6-8 But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.
When you come to Jesus, you don’t come to get healing, to be wealthy, to be rich, to be blessed… You come to Jesus to get Jesus! He is enough!
Forgive us Father God if we forget what’s important and we get distracted by what this world, forgive us when we do things our own way and plan our lives on meaningless things, remind us that You are enough. Today we thank you for our family, for all that you have done for us, we won’t ask you for anything else except to know you more and love you more. To be truly wealthy is to know, love and be known and loved by You.
All that we have is because of You. Without You we are nothing.
