“Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.””

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭13:5‬ ‭NKJV‬‬

Matthew, as a tax collector for the Romans, made a living from collecting taxes. Tax collectors became rich, often dishonestly, by exploiting their own people to benefit financially. The love of money and desire for material wealth and possessions can often be a stumbling block hindering spiritual desires. Matthew, however, left his job, wealth, and security to follow Jesus.   

What worries of this life (money, family, friends, career, home) have you turning your attention from the eternal things of heaven to the material things of this world? Nothing wrong with material things but,When believers place material possessions above our spiritual gifts and eternal inheritance, we will always be left dissatisfied and unfulfilled.

Father God, I thank You for all of the blessings in my life.  Lord, help me to be a generous and grateful steward of all which You have blessed me. Teach me, Lord, to focus on eternal, and not temporal, riches and rewards. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
