“‘The silver is mine and the gold is mine,’ declares the LORD Almighty.” (Haggai 2:8)
What do we think about? What occupies our attention? If you are in business, or even if you are not, I am sure material wealth is a core focus. We worry about what we have, don’t have, want or feel we need. If we have a lot, we are concerned with its preservation. Not enough, we are concerned by where it will come from. This has two effects, takes our eyes off what is truly important, and causes us concern.
The antidote is a clear understanding of where the true ownership is. If all wealth is God’s and we have surrendered to Him and walk in His precepts, He cares for us and will provide all we need. He even promises to give us the desires of our heart. It is all His, truly His, exclusively His. Lets keep are eyes on what is real and eternal, not artificial and temporal.
Quick Prayer. “Forgive me for being so focused on the physical.” Amen
