“Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.” (1 Timothy 6:17)
You are not rich are you? Compared with whom? Have you seen Africa? We are all in the top few in the world, where many starve and barely live. We are rich. So this scripture applies to us. Let us not be arrogant. Let us not put our hope in wealth. Yes, we are wealthy. It is so easy to trust in a pay packet a good business, an investment, maybe not the stock market. We trust in our savings, houses and superannuation. These are all good things, very good things, yet our attitude should recognize that they are uncertain, temporal and a mere vapor, compared to an enduring faithful God. It is in Him that we place our trust and hope. Then we will be able to enjoy that which he has so richly blessed us with.
Quick Prayer. “My hope is in you Lord, not in what I have.” Amen
