Each of us has different riches, whether we measure them in talents, health, or wealth. However, Ralph Waldo Emerson reminds us that, "Without a rich heart, wealth is an ugly beggar." If we choose to trust in these riches or hide them and not use them, then we will fail. We need to use what God has given us!
God blesses each and every one of us. We are not all blessed in the same way, but we are blessed. When we consider our blessings from God, we should be sure that we are not relying on these talents and riches, but are relying on the One that provides them for us. We should also decide to use our riches to glorify God and to be a source of positive change in the world. When we have faith and trust in God and use the riches that He has given us for good according to His will, we can be sure that we will flourish!
Rely on God and not on your riches, then use them with a rich heart for God's glory!
Thank You for the blessings that You have provided in my life! Help me to rely on You and to use my blessings for Your glory! Through Jesus I pray, amen.
