He Cannot Even Enjoy Them.

 As to the riches of his labor, He cannot even enjoy them. Job 20:18 The Holy Bible Amplified Version

In China they call themselves “ House Slaves”. This is because they are so much in debt that most of their money goes to pay for an over priced apartment ( they do not have houses in China and call apartments houses). They are afraid to go on vacation because someone may break in and steal all of their valuables. There is the constant upkeep of the residence.

How much of a difference is there in the rest of the world to this enslavement?

The more material wealth you possess the more of a slave you become. Joseph son of Jehovah.

There have been numerous studies done that prove the more material wealth you have the less happy you are and the more paranoid you become. The less real friendship you have.

Gee does that not sound like something you should be envious of?

Then why are you envious of the martially rich when you can have the riches of Heaven in your grasp?

“Few rich men own their own property. The property owns them .” Robert G. Ingersoll

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with an abundant supply of Your Holy love and provisions for my daily life and shall continue to do so throughout my life here. Thank you that You have prepared an amazing eternal home for me. I exalt You in the name of He who shall greet me there Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass 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.

  1. This post reminds me of Paul using the analogy of using the word of God as water, to purify – I feel that’s what your post is doing, giving a gentle rebuke here and there for the Lord Jesus. Blessings.

  2. I know a few people that are so rich, that they are always afraid someone will kidnap their child, or break into their luxury apartment. I know some others that are so afraid of being stolen that little they have, they have armed themselves up to their sleeves. This is no way of living. By they way, they have not received Jesus because “they are not religious but realists”. I prefer to have what God gives… and He is always right!. Thank you for sharing this message.

    • You are very welcome.
      As for kidnapping their children, that is a very real possibility.
      No it certainly is no way to live and their minds are warped into refusing to accept Christ into their lives.
