Do Not Let Earthly Things Get The Best Of You

Proverbs 1:19 and 15:27So are the ways of everyone who is greedy for gain; it takes away the life of its owners. He who is greedy for gain troubles his own house.
This is the trap of many. God does not say we should not have things. We are afforded material things if we have earned them out right. What we cannot fall into is think we are entitled. That someone owes us. Or even yet keep taking, not satisfied with just our portion. You may see someone walk by and their hand was in their pocket. When they pass you notice a hundred dollar bill on the ground. There should be no question as to what you should do. You may think no one will know or see. But God sees all. And as the old saying goes, God does not like ugly. Meaning he does not want you to do the wrong thing. Pray for salvation. Pray for graciousness. And pray for forgiveness and mercy. We are human. We make mistakes. We can also chose to not make them as well.
