“Better is little with the fear of the LORD than great treasure and trouble therewith.” Proverbs 15:16
In our world today we are constantly being bombarded with advertising. Our e-mail inbox is daily filled with messages, offering us special deals on things we do not need. As we stand in line at the grocery store checkout, a variety of goods entice us.
When we listen to the radio, we hear advertising for vacation trips, furniture, and almost anything else we can imagine. Web sites are mentioned where you can obtain goods at a discount price. Buy now, pay later is impressed upon our minds.
If we are not careful, we are tempted by these messages and before we know it we find ourselves deeply in debt. That is not God’s plan for our lives. He has promised to meet all our needs, not our wants. With His help, we can turn a deaf ear to all of these things and save ourselves from a lot of worry and frustration.
Prayer: Lord we thank you for all the blessings you bestow upon us and for the way you meet all our needs. Help us to be content with what we have, and not be led astray by the voices in our world.
