Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.”
Luke 12:15 NIV
We are facing the problem of greed in the Church of Jesus Christ. We have so called ministers who are willing to do anything for the sake of money and fame. Many are performing fake miracles; and arrange people to say false testimonies that they may make people believe that they are doing is true.
We hear prosperity Gospel being preached in all of our Christian Medias. Some preachers speak more about material prosperity than they way the speak about salvation. We have Christian programs that encourage people to live any kind of life style as long as they go to Church; and do good deeds but they don’t put emphasis on giving life to Jesus.
Jesus warned us to watch out, and be our guard against all kinds of greed, life is not measured by how much one owns. As Christian we should not focus on accumulating wealth as the people of the world do. We need to learn to share whatever we have with those who are in need and stop using the word of God for our own private gain.
This morning, ask God to help you share what you have with others. I believe it is not bad to have material wealth but no matter what we have in life; our focus should be on God. We should focus on our Lord Jesus Christ, and how we will live a holy life in Him.
Our Lord Jesus Christ said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." As Christians we should learn to give others more than they way we desire to receive. If we give ourselves completely to God, He will make sure that we don't lack anything in this life.
Pray this prayer with me by faith and God is going to answer your prayer....
Dear Father, help me to share what I have in my life with others. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
