Hebrews 13:5 ” Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have…”

When we are tempted to seek security in financial resources rather in the Lord, we will never be satisfied, enjoy what He has given us, or ever be grateful for anything. In other words, we will never be content, or as I Timothy 6:6-8 tells us, “But Godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that.” Just think, we can be completely content, because our needs are being met by Christ and not short-lived profits that gain us nothing. For the only true and lasting gain for us is Godliness, which is eternal. So our prayer should be something on the line of Proverbs 30:8, “Give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread.”
