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.
