Verse of the Day: Luke 12:15
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.”
Christmas is exactly 25 days away and although it’s nice to be able to give gifts to our loved ones as a token of our love. It’s also a good time to remind ourselves that life is not about possessions. People are consumed with materialism always trying to buy the newest car, the biggest house or the next big thing but they are never satisfied. Covetousness is a sin we need constantly to be warned against; for happiness and comfort do not depend on the wealth of this world. (Matthew Henry) Possessions cannot bring you true happiness, your riches are found in Jesus Christ and only He can truly satisfy your soul. Life is not about the material possessions you have, it’s about having loving relationships with the Lord, your family, and friends. It’s about helping others and making a difference in a fallen world.
Heavenly Father, thank You for the blessings in my life, I am truly grateful for everything you have provided. Help me Lord, to not be greedy or selfish but instead to have a heart of selflessness. As long as I have You, I have everything I need. Amen
