True Happiness

It is not wrong for men to possess riches. But the Bible warns that money cannot buy happiness! Money cannot buy true pleasure. Money cannot buy peace of heart. And money certainly cannot buy entrance into the Kingdom of God. Often money is a hindrance to these things. Money takes our minds off God. Riches, when used selfishly rather than for the glory of God, tend to corrupt in our hands. Money cannot be a substitute for God. If God has given you more wealth than your neighbors, dedicate it to Christ. Realize that you are only a steward of that which God has given you and some day you will have to give an account of every penny you have spent. The Internal Revenue Service wants a record of how you spend your money, but that is nothing compared to the books God is keeping.

Prayer for the day

Father, I would be a faithful steward of all You have given to me. Make me constantly aware of Your leading so I may wisely spend any money with which I have been entrusted.

    “So shall I keep Thy law continually for ever and ever, and I will walk at liberty: for I seek Thy precepts. I will speak of Thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed; and, I will delight myself in Thy commandments, which I have loved.”

    I receive your mailings and I read every word. It means so much to me to hear the words you share with me and I thank you for that. It also gives me much to think about in following Christ.

    Forgive me Lord, for money and time and talent spent foolishly in my past. Guide me to be giving with thy blessings, sharing thy gifts. Please help me find a worthwhile occupation serving others which I can work from home as I care for my beautiful Moma. Please be with those who struggle to afford daily sustenance and necessities. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    1. Lenora Wilton says:

      Mr Hall thank you for your prayers as my husband and I do struggle. Jesus has kept us strong enough to endure each day and we thank him at the end of every day and bless his name every morning and thank him again. We have been very foolish in our past also, some decisions we made were bad and some bad things happened to us that were not of our control, we are still growing in God’s word and I pray for you also that you find your worthwhile occupation.
