Be on Your Guard.

“Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.” Luke 12:15 New International Version

I have been on both side of the coin.

There have been times when I have had a lot and there have been times I have had a little.

It was when I had a lot that I kept on desiring more and more yet my life felt unfulfilled. There were times when I had little but that is when I was closest to Jehovah and felt great contentment.

My personal believe is that covetousness is like a vampire that sucks the life blood from you.

Oh you see these con artists on TV trying to convince you that if you have this big house, expensive car or go on this fabulous vacation on your dreams will come true and your life will be filled with happiness.

How many have gone on those expensive vacations only to get Montezuma’s revenge (diarrhea ) or been struck with typhoons or get robbed or any other numerous disasters. Not only that but not only do you have your problems when you return home but now you have debt as well.

It is the same thing with those houses and vehicles. Yes we all need somewhere to live but does it have to be like a mansion?

Yes we all need some form of transportation but does it have to be an expensive car?

Who are you trying to impress?

I prefer to impress Jehovah with my love for Him and my obedience to Him. I never have to worry about where to sleep, what to wear or what to eat..

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh (God our provider) for always generously supplying my daily needs in the physical realm and for blessing me with the richest treasure of them all An abundant love affair with You. I exalt You in the name of the one whom I cherish so dearly Jesus Christ. Amen                                                                                                          

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
