Money Won’t Satisfy
Is work wearing you out? Whatever your occupation is, you need to ask yourself an important question: What’s your motivation?
We think if we can just work a little harder, learn a little more, get one more promotion, we’ll be fulfilled and our money problems will go away.
But listen to Proverbs 23:4-5 –
Do not wear yourself out to get rich; do not trust your own cleverness. Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.
Did you catch that? We should quit wearing ourselves out in pursuit of money! Why? Because at the end of our life, we don’t take a penny with us.
God has a purpose for your life and it’s not to get rich – it’s to get meaning! True riches come through serving others, not getting more stuff for ourselves.
