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.

    Ecclesiastes 5:10
    “Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income. This too is meaningless.”

  3. Gerry says:

    I thank God daily for all his blessings—both spiritual and material. He is extraordinarily generous and kind always. I hold my blessings loosely for I know material blessings are not eternal. Thank you Lord for reminding me to share that which has been given to me.

  4. Mark says:

    True happiness begins as we give our lives fully to Jesus Christ. When we are obedient and walk according to His Word, we may experience His abundant life and blessings.
