In this life we are surrounded by a million opportunities to buy stuff but are often frustrated that we can’t have much of it because we don’t have the millions of dollars needed to get it. Some of us have too much stuff and some of us really do need more stuff. The stuff you choose to purchase, keep, give away and throw away can define the kind of life you live. I have met millionaires who appeared poor and poor people deep in debt trying to appear to be millionaires. The Bible has a lot to say about money and possessions, including Paul instructing Timothy, “Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth…. For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows.” 1 Timothy 6:6,10. Don’t spend your life trying to find contentment apart from God! Come be encouraged this Sunday at Emmanuel Baptist Church to worship God with the stuff He provides for you and to gain a right perspective on the temporary finances flowing in and out of your life.
