Avoid the Trouble

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Proverbs 15:27; Proverbs 28:25

"Whoever is greedy for unjust gain troubles his own household, but he who hates bribes will live" (Proverbs 15:27).

"A greedy man stirs up strife, but the one who trusts in the LORD will be enriched" (Proverbs 28:25).

When we allow our thoughts to be consumed by acquiring money and wealth, it leads to all sorts of trouble--conflict, jealousy, discord, rivalry, fighting--not only within our family, but also with others (work, school, neighbors, business transactions, friends).

Think of a time when you had greedy thoughts and acted on them. What happened, and how did you feel afterwards? When we choose to focus on God and trust Him in the area of money and finances, what's the impact on our thinking, our attitude, our actions (in other words, how are we "enriched")? Tami

The results of my greed were "it wasn't worth it!"

Focusing on God and trusting Him in the area of money and finances helps me not worry and get upset unnecessarily.
There is a quiet spirit within me, peace in my heart and to know that it will all work out because God desires the best for me.

His way is always perfect, I need not fear but trust in the Lord to supply all of my needs! He does!

I Ask God every day to guide us financially. He had brought me through many tough times.

I hope you'll join in the conversation as we read the Bible and grow together.
