Money or Me?

Chasing contentment. How much more ironic could it be?

Many people these days are busier than ever chasing money. For them money is happiness. But when they get the money, they make another run for more money. There's no stopping. There's no happiness. Zero contentment and more compromise.

Truly, "we buy things we don't need, with money we don't have, to impress people we don't even like..." commonly, because we envy our neighbors. Having this motivation leads to burnout - and you might overlook the things that really matter.

Look at one of God's promise. He says, "Do not love money. Be satisfied with what you have. I will never fail you. I will never abandon you." Hebrews 13:5

His grace is sufficient indeed.

If we add a righteous purpose on earning and handling money, it will bring not only happiness, but joy, and a very comforting feeling of satisfaction, knowing that God will provide, even if we don't deserve.

Let's ask ourselves, do we have a righteous purpose? What's our purpose with money?

Money or me? - asks the Lord.
