Money Ain't Everything
by Berni Dymet
Psalm 62:5 For God alone my soul waits in silence, for my hope is from him.
Depending on where you live - maybe affluence is a way of life. Or alternately, you might live in a country where poverty is the norm.
I'm always blown away by the fact that someone in Rwanda, someone in the UK and someone in Brazil and someone in Papua New Guinea is listening to this short reflection.
So - what do I say about money? Material possessions How can we reflect on God's wisdom on wealth right across that spectrum?
Well, thankfully, God's wisdom transcends our situations. One of the things He says in Psalm 62 is that if your riches increase, don't set your heart on them.
Maybe we have plenty, maybe we don't. But I've seen people who seem to have it all, people who should be happy, who should be secure, yet they're miserable and lost and empty.
That's what happens when we set our heart on riches. The writer of that Psalm goes on to say "On God alone my soul waits in silence for my hope is in Him." That works - wherever you are.
