-Luke 12:15 (NASB)
Jesus cares for us and He wants us to be happy, but He knows that out true happiness can't be found in possessions or things...no matter how much we think we "need" them! Jesus tells us that we need to be careful of being greedy, covetous, or wanting more than we need. Our possessions do not define our lives or who we are as a person. Instead of seeking to define ourselves with our possessions, we should define ourselves by our faith in God, His Son, and salvation through Jesus' sacrifice and never-ending love!
Remember that our happiness and identity is not found in our things, but in our faith!
Thank You for providing for all of my needs. Help me to see the differences between my needs and my wants and help me to be able to guide my daughter in knowing what is truly important. Allow me to define myself by my faith in You. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
