Jesus reminds us to beware and on guard against greed. While we may not think we are acting out of greed, we should think about what we have and what we need. We don't have to deprive ourselves, but our focus shouldn't be on acquiring an abundance of possessions. If our attention is taken away from God and placed on the things that we have, we can miss opportunities to serve God. We can find contentment and happiness in God and in serving Him, we don't need to worry about the possessions that we have!
Focus on God and don't worry about what you have, just be happy as you work to serve Him!
Thank You for always providing for me. Help me to remember to keep my focus on You and not on the things that I have or want. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
