Manna For Today: Tuesday, August 23, 2016
Hebrews 13:5 – Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He [God] Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.”
We must constantly check our motivation, particularly as it relates to acquisitions, to ensure we are not motivated by the ‘Jones.’ The grass may be greener on the other side of the fence but you don’t know what the water bill is. There is nothing at all wrong with acquiring nice things and enjoying them.
There is something right about being contented with what you have; the emphasis on the ‘being’ part. God helps with that and is always with us. This we desperately need!
Peace and blessings!
