In our lives, we will either serve money or God. We can’t be devoted to both and live a satisfied life.
If you choose to pursue money as your dream, then it won’t be long before it enslaves you. Whenever you live beyond your means, then you become a slave to your lender, and just look at how many people borrow it with being unable to pay it back? When you live beyond your means, and you are able to get out of debt, its a valuable lesson to learn that you never want to repeat.
If you choose to pursue God, and seek His kingdom for your life, then He will always provide for you. My wife and I are living examples of how God has looked after us. We have never gone without food to eat, a place to call home, paid employment, and a car to drive. Our lives are extraordinarily rich simply because we are following Jesus, and its His job to look after us.
So, the next time you are wondering who to follow, let Jesus be your guide.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, help us to see money as a resource and you as our Provider. May we choose to depend upon you for everything we need, so that you can have your rightful place in our lives. Thank you, Lord Jesus! Amen.
