True Richness

A young woman counts her blessings during a walk on an autumn afternoon

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.—Philippians 4:8-9 (NIV)

How do you define wealth? Is it the balance in your bank account or the type of car in your driveway? True richness is not measured in currency, but in experience, compassion, forgiveness and faith. True richness comes from your relationship with God. If you don’t feel wealthy, list the many priceless blessings you have that money can’t buy.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, Your life-giving truths fill my heart with peace.
