Psalm 62:10 Trust not in oppression, and become not vain in robbery: if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
God has blessed many Americans with much more money than the majority of the world. There is an inherent danger in having things. If we are not careful our possessions will begin to possess us.
We get comforts and that is good. God gives us richly all things to enjoy. 1Timothy 6:17
But we are never to forget that all we have comes from Him. He wants us to enjoy Him not the toys and gifts that He gives us to the exclusion of Him.
Men go about trying to get lots of money and things but it is a great waste of time because they do not know who will get them after they are gone. Psalm 39:6
The danger of God being so good to us is that we will forget that it was God that blessed us. We will get our things and begin to enjoy them. We will forget Him. Deuteronomy 6:10-12
Things are never as important as our soul and our walk with God. Mark 8:36-37
Life is not about how much you have. Having things doesnâ€™t guarantee life. Our trust must be in the Lord God of Heaven Luke 12:15-21
I challenge you today to realize that all that we are and all that we have as children of God comes from His goodness. All of it should be used to honor and glorify God.
Be sure that your heart is set on Jesus and not things.
