Bless Me With Contentment
If you have a choice to choose between poverty and wealth, what will you choose?
I am sure that everyone including myself will choose wealth. I am tired of being poor!
I am tired of living from pay check to pay check! How many people feel my pain right now?
Many of you do!
But, the disadvantage of being wealthy is that your money can buy every material things that you desire so you might forget God.
Money answers everything! Or Does it really?
It is a fact that most people only remember God during trials or lack.
However, no wants want to be living in poverty and deprivation. It is not God’s desire that we live in destitution.
Poverty exists because of poor distribution of wealth, greed and illiteracy.
God’s desire for us is to be contented and to have enough to sustain us and our family, and of curse some savings. When God blesses us with wealth it is to give generously to the poor.
God, I ask you to do two things for me before I die. Don’t let me tell lies. And don’t make me too rich or too poor—give me only enough food for each day. If I have too much, I might deny that I need you, Lord. But if I am too poor, I might steal and bring shame to the name of my God. (Proverbs 30:7-9)
