Trust Issue

| | Comments (2)

Today's reading: Proverbs 11:28; Proverbs 18:11

Part of living life is dealing with and having money, and the pull of money is a strong one. The temptation is constantly before us to evaluate or equate our security with our financial bottom line--our bank account, retirement balances or our possessions. That being the case, it's imperative that we keep our eyes fixed on God as the giver and provider of ALL things. When we arm ourselves with this mindset, serving, following and trusting God will be our top priority and our thoughts about money (which are a necessary part of life) will take their rightful place further down the list.

"A rich man's wealth is his strong city, and like a high wall in his imagination" (Proverbs 18:11).

"Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like a green leaf" (Proverbs 11:28).

What's one thing that helps you keep a proper perspective on having or accumulating money and possessions? Do you regularly thank God for being the provider and giver of all you have? Why is this important? Tami

We do not have a problem of having or accumulating money probably since we are on a fixed income. If we did, prayer would be a priority and how to use it properly would be the one important thing.
I should be thanking the Lord Who is my giver and provider more regularly than sometimes.

It is important to thank the Lord because the Lord is the reason that we have the provision in the first place.

Thanks for another good lesson, Tami.

Giving helps me keep a proper perspective. Where your treasure is, your heart is also.
