I recently read a quote by Josephine Tey that says, "Riches don't consist in having things, but in not having to do something you don't want to do." We know that there are times when we have to do certain things that we may not want to do. Being able to get out of doing something we don't want to do may feel like riches!
In our journey through life, there are bound to be things we want to do and don't want to do, but there is Good News! We no longer need to be bound by sin and its consequences. God provides us a way to riches because we do not need to suffer the wrath of sin. We can be redeemed through His Son! When we are forgiven, we are given riches through God's grace and mercy. We can rejoice in our freedom in God!
God has given you riches under His grace. Rejoice!
Thank You for loving me and for Your grace that covers my sin. Help me to live a life that is free in You and through You. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
