On Sunday, I told our church that Jesus talked about two different different money attitudes that can keep us from experiencing God's very best in our lives. Here they are...
"...be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions." (Luke 12:15 NASB)
And the second one is found just a few verses later...
“...don’t worry about the food you need to live, or about the clothes you need for your body. (Luke 12:22 NCV)
I find it fascinating that Jesus seemed to describe those warring emotions as potential robbers that can take away our joy and our peace.
Worry, or (simply) insecurity.
Would you do me a favor? Which of these do you struggle with the most? And, if you are married, ask your spouse the same question. I asked the question on Monday night in our Small Group and was fascinated by the answers.
By the way, I struggle more with greed.
