Life is Not About Possessions

Luke 12:15

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.

Brag About the Lord

1 Corinthians 1:31

Verse of the Day:  1 Corinthians 1:31           

Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”

True wisdom is not found in your own understanding, strength is not found in your own power and wealth is not found in earthly riches. They are found in knowing the one true living God. I cannot boast about anything I have because I know that every good gift comes from my Father above. Everything I have and everything I am is because of God’s unfailing love, mercy and saving grace.  The only thing I can boast about is knowing the Lord. I can boast about His kindness, justice and righteousness. I can brag about what He’s done for me, how He changed my life and how He saved a wretch like me.
