We are over half-way through Luke. God is showing me areas in which I need
work guidance. How about you?
Luke 16.13 "No servant can serve two masters. Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and Money." ~ Jesus
Make a choice: serve God OR money, but not both.
It is so easy to think I am serving God, only to find out I'm serving money. Per my study Bible, these questions are posed to see if you are a slave to money: (1) Do you think and worry about about it frequently? yes (2) Do you give up doing what you should do or would like to do in order to make more money? no (3) Do you spend a great deal of your time caring for your possessions? no (4) Is it hard for you to give money away? sometimes (5) Are you in debt? not anymore
Wealth promises power and control, but not health, happiness, or eternal life. In general, people who serve their money are not content with what they do have; whereas, true servants of God have peace of mind and security, both now and eternal.
Dear God... I can find a lot of excuses for worrying about money and our (at times) lack thereof. But You have told me not to worry; You will supply all my needs and this includes our finances. Help me to seek Your guidance in our finances and follow Your lead. Amen
This is such a timely message for me with Christmas just 4 days away. No one in my family truly needs more stuff, but I want to tangibly show my family how much I love them.
