Some People are SO POOR.....All they have is MONEY!
Interesting quote isn't it? A true quote!!
This past evening, we attended home groups through our church. Let me explain.....a couple times a year, we as a congregation, sign up to attend different home groups at the homes of those that are hosting the meetings. It's an excellent way to be able to fellowship with people in the church that we might or might not normally have contact with.
Not only do we gather and EAT, but there is always a selected study that each group does in unison.
This time, our study is "The Christian Atheist" by Craig Groeschel.
Isn't this an ODD title? I had many questions about the title of this study because it sounds so contradicting, BUT...the author does an excellent job of explaining what he is talking about.
Believing in God.....But Living as if HE doesn't exist!
Admitting we know God, we believe in God.....but living the way we want to live with no consideration for God's word.
This weeks study was on BELIEVING IN GOD BUT TRUSTING MORE IN MONEY!
I have found myself on numerous occasions, treading in the depths of these muddy waters. Not trusting God for the things in my life! More so.....not being content!! Ouch, it hurts to admit this.
It is way too easy to worry about the deposits in our bank account, rather than to consider our deposits of goodness in giving back to the world.
Does money really make us happy? This is certainly a loaded question.......most of us, without a doubt would say YES to this question. Sure, it would nice to wake up each morning knowing that we can start our day with no debt, no utility bills, plenty of food, and being able to purchase all the desires of our heart.
No....it's the last part of that statement that I'm talking about. Being able to purchase anything that we wanted. This might be fun for a short while, but in time......we would wake up each day with NO contentment, because things DO NOT BRING US HAPPINESS...
As I sit here writing this, I have to ask myself if I have done any justice to this message.....maybe not, but I do know that I was encouraged by the study last night and I want to learn to be more CONTENT IN MY OWN LIFE.
I do not want my Trust to be in a piece of paper with numbers written on it. I want my total trust to be in GOD
Hope you all have a Blessed day
