“Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. Matthew 6:19 New King James Version
Here is the two pronged attack Satan uses on us:
One Lucifer gets us so interested in gaining material things to keep up with the Jones that puts men and women deeply in debt.
We grow exhausted in being slaves to a debt that will never be repaid.
Every increased possession leads us to new weariness. John Ruskin
That brings the second attack:
Then you are so busy working to pay off the debt and worrying about it that you neglect time with Jehovah in daily Bible reading and praying and enjoying all the beauty around us that He graciously abundantly blesses us with.
I find it funny when taking photos. Many people look at me like I am weird because they see me taking photos of the simple things all around us. I explain the simple beauty in the object and it is as if their eyes are open and they look at me in amazement and say: You know, I walk past that every day to work and never paid any attention to it.”
When you notice nature, you see Gods handiwork. Joseph- Anthony: Green
Prayer: Please Jesus Pyrrand (Jesus my friend) bless me to always esteem our loving relationship higher than any material thing that only brings me emptiness and a slave to debt. In Your cherished name I do request this most treasured blessing. Amen.
May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.
