Daily Devotion


Today's Bible verse really spoke to me. In these hard financial times, it's easy to get down in the dumps. After losing a job, a home, and watching one's stocks crumble, many feel so distraught that they'd rather die than live in uncertainty. A lot of people say that "Money is the root of all evil," but in reality, the Bible states that "The love of money is the root of all evil." Many of us are used to having to fight to make it, which is why times like this aren't as devastating to some. Yet, if others realized that God is the one and only true provider, then perhaps they too could find some peace in a time of despair.

"But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into the world, and we can take nothing out of it. But if we have food and clothing, we will be content with that. People who want to get rich fall into temptation and a trap and into many foolish and harmful desires that plunge men into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs." 1 Timothy 6:6-10 (NIV)

It is a constant reminder that we can not take the things of this world with us. It's hard not to get caught up in gaining those things, but when you take the time to take a step back (which is so hard because Americans lead such fast-paced lives) there is peace knowing that we don't have to have it all here...for our riches are in Heaven. Great post!
