Scripture: Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5 NIV
Observation: Paul closes the book of Hebrews with some last words if encouragement and instruction.
Application: I don’t know how often I have heard through my life the proclamation “money is the root of all evil!” I know from today’s scripture that that proclamation was a misrepresentation of Paul’s exhortation to the Hebrew believers. It’s not money that is the root of all evil it’s the “love” of money. When we focus on money we stop focusing on the Lord. That’s the sin. The Lord is all we need and he promised he would always be with us and never forsake us.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for getting us through this past week. I ask in Jesus’ name for safe travel home. Thank you for the reminder today that you are all we need. Thank you. Amen
