Devotionals 7-12-10

Today I am reading on the subject of Greed

I have been struggling with the difficult life lesson that it can not be your way all the time. I have been told by my husband as well as other people that I always want attention and I have to have everything my way. I have been having a hard time understanding why other people have money and happy families and why I can not ever seam to have the happy family that I want.

I cam across
Luke 12:13-21
The Parable of the Rich Fool

13)Someone in the crowd said to him, Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me."
14)Jesus replied"Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?" 15) Then he said to them "Watch out! Be on your guard aginst all kinds of greed: a man's life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions."
16) And he told them this parable: "The ground of a certain rich man produced a good crop. 17) He thought to himself. 'what shall I do? I have no place to store my crops'
18)"Then he said, 'This is what I'll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods 19)And I'll say to myself," You have plenty of good things laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry." '
20)But God said to him, ' You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?'
21)"This is how it will be with anyone who stores up things for himself but is not rich toward God.


For it is not by all the nice things that I want that I should find happiness but instead it is by the love of God and my family that I shall find happiness and then I will be rich but rich in love not money.

I continue to tell my husband that life is not about money because I want him home with me sometimes and not working all the time but yet I have no problem going out and spendig without a second doubt on stuff that I want. I am too busy trying to have nice things and trying to "Live up to the Jones' " rather than to just enjoy my family.

Mood: hopeful
