Day 17: Rising Past Greed

Hebrews 13:5: "Keep your life free from love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.''

Soar! In 66 days

Hebrews 13:5: "Keep your life free from the love of money, and be content with what you have, for he has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.'" We've all been taught that the love of money is the root of all evil. But when it comes to the sin of greed, it's easier said than done. No matter how much we have, it's hard not to just want a little bit more. Ultimately, it all comes down to valuing the provision of God over the possessions of man. Rising past greed means understanding that even if we lose everything in this life, we have eternal riches in Christ.

Faith-In-Action:  Greed is a selfish or excessive desire for more than is needed or deserved, especially of money, wealth, food, or other possessions. Recognize that our brains are wired to overvalue what we don't have(almost instantly). This is true even when we no longer need the money, wealth, food, or other possessions. 

On today be self-less( Ex. Give something away that you have more than enough of, let someone cut in front of you in the line or don't take an extra slice of cake).  Denied Flesh Today! God has all Power and supplies our every need, Rise Past selfish things that we feel we must have, "Selah on that" (think about it)...
