Ecclesiastes 5:13: There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt.
Meditation: Ouch! Does it hurt you to hear such a proclamation? If you live in the good old US of A then you are richer than you think. The poorest 20% of people in this country are richer than most of the rest of the world. Everything we have comes from God and belongs to Him. Let’s not be stingy with what God has blessed us with. Do you like to invest? Invest in the lives of others. Give your riches, whether that be time, money or possessions to those in need. Support your local Church, give to missions and God will certainly bless beyond measure!
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to be a blessing to others and to remember that all that I have is only on “loan” and belongs to you. Amen.
