BACK TO BASICS – THE MONEY MIRAGE
In 1 Timothy 6:17, the Apostle Paul says these words:
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
Have you ever stopped to consider just how uncertain earthly riches are?
Billionaires can become bankrupt overnight…
Thieves can steal our most prized possessions…
401ks can fail…
Savings accounts can vanish…
Jobs can be lost…
And all of the goods we purchased can be destroyed. It is so foolish to put our hope in such uncertain things.
And so Paul instructs Timothy…command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant or to put their hope in wealth. You may not feel like you’re very rich, but do you know what it means to be rich? It means you have more than what you need to survive today. Compared to the rest of the world, most of us are living in great abundance…and as a result, we live in danger of placing our hope in wealth and possessions, which are so uncertain. Instead, Paul tells us that we should place our hope in God! After all, He is the One who richly provides all things for our enjoyment.
Friend, if you’ve been chasing the almighty dollar, let me encourage you to look instead to almighty God. Don’t waste your life striving to gain something that will never satisfy your soul. Turn to Christ and trust Him to provide for you as you enjoy His blessing.
