Scripture for Today

Luke 12:15 Speaking to the people, he went on, “Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot.”(Msg)

A highly successful businessman was once asked to make a substantial donation toward an urgent charity appeal. The businessman listened to the case presented then said, “I can understand why you approached me. Yes I do have a lot of money, and yours is an important cause. But are you aware that I have a lot of calls upon my money? Did you know my mother needs 24 hour nursing care?”

“No we didn’t” came the reply.

“Did you know my sister is struggling to raise a family of eight on her own?”

“No we didn’t” came the reply.

“Did you know I have one son in a drug rehab clinic and another doing voluntary work overseas?”

“No we didn’t”

“Well, if I don’t give them a cent, what makes you think I’ll give it to you?!”

Have you ever had so much money and all your needs are met? There is always constant need for money. The more you have, the more needs you have. In life their is never 100% satisfaction of needs, the key is contentment.

Life is not defined by the amount of things you have, it is not defined by the number of shoes, clothes, houses, cash at hand or any of the other stuffs. There is more to life, Jesus is the key to excellent living. 

Prayer: Father, give me the spirit of contentment.
