Theme For David Jeremiah Devotional 22 August 2019 – THE BLESSED IN-BETWEEN
Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy.
1 Timothy 6:17
Recommended Reading: Proverbs 30:5-9
God does bestow wealth on some of His servants, and their generosity has financed many of the great ministries that have changed the world. God also allows some of His people to live in humility, and their selflessness has also changed the lives of many people. Prosperity is no indication of righteousness, and poverty is not necessarily a virtue. The important thing is maintaining the absolute Lordship of Christ over all our life, including our money and possessions. The Bible warns, “But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare…For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil” (1 Timothy 6:9-10).
Whether rich or poor—or somewhere in the blessed in-between—let Christ be Lord of all.
Having, First, gained all you can, and, Secondly saved all you can, Then give all you can.
