If riches increase, do not set your heart on them. Psalm 62:10 The Holy Bible Amplified Version
I have met many wealthy folks that material riches is their only thoughts day and night. They are never satisfied with what they have. They sacrifice their unhealthy everything: their physical health, their mental health, their relationships, and their place in Heaven in their desire for material gain. Worst of all they sacrifice their relationship with Jehovah for the dead god of wealth.
In todays world we see so much greed for material gains that this easily applies to the majority of society as well, even though they are in debt up to their eyeballs. They sacrifice a loving relationship with Jehovah for material things which are dead and cannot love them back.
Perhaps that is why depression is a pandemic today.
There is an old saying that says that when the times are good the churches are empty, when they times are bad the churches are full. I have witnessed this through many of decades of walking with Christ.
“Wherever riches have increased, the essence of religion has decreased in the same proportion.” John Wesley
Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Jireh ( God provides ) for blessing me with Your daily provisions. Thank you for bountifully blessing me daily with Your Divine love which is the greatest treasure of all. I extol Thee in the name of the supreme treasure my Beloved best friend Jesus Christ. Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
