Knowing Satisfaction

faithbelief

How sad it is that we spend so much of our time and energy, seeking satisfaction from money and possessions, and so  little time seeking after God?  After all He is the true source of our contentment.

Solomon devoted much of his life to obtaining great riches and acquisitions From Ecclesiastes 2 verse 10 & 11:

“Whatever my eyes desired i did not keep from them”.

Yet Solomon goes on to say, from what he conclude about his riches and acquisitions.

‘I found everything to be futile and a pursuit of the wind.”

Luke 12 verse 15: “He {Jesus} told them, ‘Watch out and be on guard against all greed because one’s life is not in the abundance of processions’.”

Hebrews 13 verse 5; “Your life should be free from the love of money. Be satisfied with what you have, for He himself has said, ‘I will.never leave you or forsake you’.”

Proverbs 11 verse 28: “Anyone trusting in his riches will fall, but the righteous will flourish like foliage.”

Mathew 6 verse 31 to 33: v31 “So don’t worry, saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ v32 For the idolaters eagerly seek all these thing,and your Heavenly father knows that you need them. v33But seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided to you’.”

What a wonderful Scripture, on  such a misunderstood and such a difficult subject.

To know what The Apostle Paul knew, when He said in:

2 Corinthians 12 verse 9; “For His Grace is more than enough for us”.

God riches at Christ Jesus expense, is more than enough, to make us content in our journey through life.

God Bless.
