Haggai 1:6 Ye have sown much, and bring in little; Ye eat, but ye have not enough; Ye drink, but ye are not filled with drink; Ye clothe you, but there is none warm; And he that earneth wages earneth wages to put it into a bag with holes.
God’s people only considered themselves. They didn’t think about God nor were they thankful for all He was doing in their lives. They didn’t realize that as they worked and sought after money, they were really losing. They worked hard, but God wasn’t blessing.
Money can never satisfy us. We will never have enough unless we work at turning from things to God. Material goods make lousy masters. Money is a terrible boss. We must let Jesus rule in our hearts. We must live with our hands open for God to take and use whatever He wants. Unclench your fist. Let go of your stuff. Take your treasures off the throne of your heart and put Jesus there,
Then God will bless you as you serve Him. He will not allow you to lose more than you make. He will bless you!
