Message Summary: In the Bible, having possessions is not condemned; and the Bible commends those that save for the future. In Proverbs 6:6, the propensity of the ant to “store up” in the summer for the winter is posited as behavior we should emulate: “Go to the ant, O sluggard; consider her ways, and be wise.". The Bible encourages the followers of Jesus to work hard and to be thankful for what God provides while having joy, as we learn from Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:58: ”Therefore, my beloved brothers, be steadfast, immovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, knowing that in the Lord your labor is not in vain.".

 

Today’s Affirmation: Today, because of I am filled with the Holy Spirit, I will not be controlled by my Self-centerednessRather, I will walk in the Spirit’s fruit of Love. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22f).

Scripture Reference (ESV): Proverbs 6:6; 1 Corinthians 15:58; Exodus 20:8-11; Deuteronomy 14:29.
