Day 36 Wealth
Saturday, October 29, 2016
I have seen another evil under the sun, and it weighs heavily on mankind: God gives some people wealth, possessions and honor, so that they lack nothing their hearts desire, but God does not grant them the ability to enjoy them, and strangers enjoy them instead. This is meaningless, a grievous evil. - Ecclesiastes 6:1-2
"Sell your possessions and give to those in need. This will store up treasure for you in heaven! And the purses of heaven never get old or develop holes. Your treasure will be safe; no thief can steal it and no moth can destroy it." - Luke 12:33
Though possessions are gifts from God, they can also distract believers from the fact that all in this life is temporary. However, many possessions God gives us, we need to share them generously and store up treasures in heaven.
Heavenly Father, keep my possessions from becoming my focus. I have been blessed with many things; help me to share them with others.
