God Never Fails

Read: Hebrews 13:5-6, Ecclesiastes 5:10

When we love something, we do anything for it. The love of money will lead people to make foolish decisions, because we will do anything to have more. Regardless of how new our phones are, how big our homes get or how many designer labels we have in the closet, we will never be satisfied. And when we feel dissatisfied with what we have, we do things like take out a loan for a new car when we have one that runs just fine. We make unwise investments, because we are promised a too-good-to-be-true return.

The Bible tells the story of an Israelite boy named Moses that was rescued from death and raised by the daughter of the Pharaoh, the ruler of Egypt (Exodus 2). He was born into poverty and adopted into royalty of the highest extent. Moses could have chosen an easy life of royalty, but he loved God more than he loved money. While he grew up in a palace, Moses traded a life of luxury to follow God’s call on his life and lead the nation of Israel on a 40-year trek through the desert. It was not a glamorous life, but Hebrews 11:26 says, “(Moses) thought it was better to suffer for the sake of Christ than to own the treasures of Egypt, for he was looking ahead to his great reward.”

Money will never satisfy us the way the love of Jesus does. New stuff gets old. But God never fails us, never abandons us. So let us be content in working a good job, not borrowing for things we do not need, spending time with our families and doing what God would have us do.

Think About:
1. Are you content with what you have or constantly looking to upgrade? Why?
2. Think about the worst financial decision you ever made. What was your motive for that purchase or decision?
3. Do you love God more than you love money? If He asked you to give up everything you owned, would His love be enough?

Pray:
Jesus, Your love is more satisfying than any possessions. Help me to be content with what I have and to put our relationship first.
