This global economic recession has really revealed the true hearts of a lot of people.
Grasping and clinging to what little they have…. fearful that it just wont be enough for them and their families…. worried over their future, perhaps realizing that no matter how much money they horde up, IT JUST WONT BE ENOUGH…
Is this YOU ? ….
… and what if you have LOST your job ? …. surely that is a good enough excuse to be clinging to whatever little money you have left ???
Jesus said, “GIVE… and it SHALL be given unto you……. for with the same measure that ye measure it shall be measured to you again” (Luke 6:38)
But this calls for FAITH…. GREAT faith…. to give away what little you have… TRUSTING God to provide for you “somehow”…
Business people do not operate by faith…. Banks do not operate according to faith… the world does not run on faith….. and, face it, people’s finances are COLLAPSING, it’s a fact…. and YET…
The BIBLE says, “Love your neighbor as yourself” Matthew 22:39
1 John 4:20 “…. he who does not love his brother whom he has seen , how can he love God whom he has not seen ?”
Think about it…. is it all about you ? …. or is it all about God ?… God will look after you when you put Him FIRST (1 Kings 17:10 – 14)
Prayer for Today:
Loving Heavenly Father, We PREFER to honor your Word in FAITH… this will be OUR ONLY HOPE for the future… our finite resources are clearly inadequate for the years ahead… and we CHOOSE to worship and praise You… instead of scheming, hording and worrying about what might happen to us later in life…. Bless us, we pray in Jesus name, Amen.
