“Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.” (Psa 119:36)
What is important to us? By what standards do we live? If we are consumed by consumerism we will do anything to advance our agenda. If we are God fearing, we will be driven to follow His ways. Often we are somewhere in between, trying to balance our natural greed with the implementation of His way of doing things.
Ultimately our walk is governed by our relationship with Him. If we invest in spending time with God and fostering relationships, He will indwell our very hearts and empower us against our natural temptations to acquire and wander.
You can have success and gain without being selfish. It is not about what you have; it is about your heart and who you are.
Quick Prayer: You are more important than Your blessing. Amen.
