| GOD, WEALTH & JOY |
|Moreover, when God gives any man wealth and possessions, and enables him to enjoy them, to accept his lot and be happy in his work –this is a gift of God. –Ecclesiastes 5:19
I was talking to a friend of mine yesterday, and we got into a conversation about being rich and unhappy. We talked about how there are so many people who have all the wealth in the world, but still aren’t satisfied because something is missing in their lives, but yet there are those who just barely survive and have all the joy in the world. Why is this?
I believe that the reason why we all don’t have everything in the world is because God created us to need each other. We were made to depend on each other to some extent, and having all the riches in the world doesn’t even guarantee that you wouldn’t need someone who doesn’t have as much. Those who have riches may not be happy, and those who have joy may still need material wealth. When can we have both?
If you have God, he enables you to enjoy wealth and have joy. Many people have completely removed God out of the equation in their lives, and when this happens, he is forced to humble us to a place where we realize that we need him. Like the verse above says, when we have God, he gives us wealth and possessions and enables us to enjoy it. There is nothing as wonderful as having God and having wealth and joy.
Seek first the kingdom of God and everything else will be added unto you. Seek him first, and he will give you wealth. Seek him first and he will give you joy. Seek him first and he will enable you to enjoy your life. Seek him first and hold on to him even after everything has been added unto you, and he will give you life, life abundantly. Why don’t you try him today?
Stay blessed and spread the word.
