Bible Verse of the Week

“Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be content with what you have, because God has said: “Never will I leave you, Never will I forsake you.”

Hebrews 13:5

 

Detach yourselves from greed and the love of money. It is okay to be ambitious, but there is a thin line between that and greed. God ALWAYS provides. God detects greed within us and will keep us from those desires until we have a sense of humbleness and a feeling of immense content and gratefulness for what we already have. So many of us take things for granted without even knowing. How is God going to bless us with a surplus of even more money, when we are not grateful for the amount we have in the first place? We must pause, and realize the huge blessings we do have, which is an abundance that we have been overlooking. You can’t overlook one abundance in hopes of a bigger one. You must be grateful and content with the abundance already granted to you. So many people have it much worse than you. Yet, still find a way to stay grateful. Some do not, which is why they never find the abundance they are looking for. Sometimes we take things for granted without even realizing. Hot showers in the morning, the smell of coffee, fresh clothes straight out of our own washing machines, Dinner to eat with our families. When you stop and are truly happy and thankful for what you do have, that is when God will start blessing you with more! Amen.
