Spiritual Food for Thought for the Weekend
Proverbs 30:8, 9 (NIV)
“Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the Lord?’ Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.”
I love this message! I pray this regularly. I pray that you will be satisfied in Jesus so that it does not really matter how much or little you possess. The apostle put it best when he declared, “I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need” (Phi. 4:11-12). This world tries to tempt us away from our pure devotion to Christ. I pray that you will be rich in Christ. Abide in him.
Prayer: Dear God, give us our daily bread. Give us Jesus. Amen.
