What Are You Chasing? (Proverbs 15)

April 16, 2020

Have you ever met a rich person who was miserable?


It’s a sad day when the rich realize that money doesn’t buy happiness. Who are the rich?  Well, by the world’s standards you and I are rich but are we content? Proverbs 15 speaks to this: it’s better to have a little and trust the Lord than have a lot and live in turmoil. It’s better to have a simple meal in a loving home than a feast with hatred served on the side. What’s the lesson? Rather than chasing material things, seek first the kingdom of God and be rich in love.
