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.

  4. Gerry says:

    There is great joy in giving. To see the smile on the face of those less fortunate. To help relieve a financial burden on someone in need. Or simply by giving of your time for a project requiring help. God is pleased when we demonstrate our love for others by giving a portion of what he has blessed us with.

  6. Sheree Meltose says:

    I just read in Psalms 1st chapter: “He (who loves Gods word) shall be like a tree planted by streams of water, whose leaf does not wither, and whatsoever he does shall prosper.” My Bible had a picture and a comment that this was true happiness.
