Daily Scripture and Thoughts

for we brought nothing into the world, and we cannot take anything out of the world. But if we have food and clothing, with these we will be content. But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. (1 Timothy 6:7-9 ESV)

Dear Ones

This world is obsessed with materialism. The latest phones, computers, tablets, new cars with technology and on and on it goes but truthfully it means NOTHING.. and in the end it will mean nothing. None of it will go with us, all of it will burn when the Lord returns. So what is it about humans that makes us so obsessed with things. It reminds me of an animal who will kill themselves to get something shine. No thought process comes into play. It is all about getting the object at the risk of their life.

IS that who we are? are we all about getting the "object" at the risk of our souls? Sometimes those materialistic things require our soul... we must work crazy hours to obtain them, our god must become money. We sacrifice family, children, our Lord Jesus to get  it and we do it with our lives.

Lord- you show us through your Word that you meant your people to be content with our needs being provided. This world breeds in a us a desire for wealth and money which goes against who you are. Lord Help us to desire the things above and NOT the things on this earth!
In Jesus Name Amen
