Let your way of life be without greed for money
Hebrew 13:5 - Let your conversation (manner of living) be without covetousness (greed for money); and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
Since these few days the Lord has been again and again trying to drill a message to us. The Lord wants to remind us that He is Living God and He is aware and in control of everything that happens. Nothing in this world can happen without his knowledge or permission. There is no place in creation where we cannot find Him except in our inner self if we do not acknowledge Him there.
He has been telling us if we have a need, He knows it. But before we look at our wants He asks us to learn to enjoy what He has given us. As far as our other needs go, He will surely provide us. But if we do not acknowledge Him in our inner being, our daily activities and start worrying then we land up sinning against Him. This angers Him more and we soon find ourselves in worst conditions.
So let us ask God's forgiveness for not trusting Him and sinning against Him. And having faith in Him as our provider, let us learn to not be greedy in our worldly living.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, You are Living God. From ancient to now and forever You exist and your glory fills all creation. You are holy and holy is your Name. You are worthy of all glory and all glory belongs to You. Nothing in the world living or dead, in body or in spirit can lift its head against You. You have been tolerating us and our stupidity because You love us. Lord, we ask You to help us realized not only when we sit to pray, but also during the times when we are conversing with other, or doing our work or sitting all by ourselves. Help us overcome our greed and our foolishness and help us pursue You and your Kingdom more than this world...
This we ask in Jesus' Name,Amen.
