What Really Matters

A falling star

Speaking to the people, He went on, “Take care! Protect yourself against the least bit of greed. Life is not defined by what you have, even when you have a lot.”—Luke 12:15 (MSG)

WE ALL NEED to heed Jesus’s warning in the above verse. Life is not defined by what you have--and sometimes our stuff actually becomes a trap, taking you away from your true self and making you believe that you are what you have. If you start judging yourself by your material possessions, ask God to open your eyes to His truth.

Today's Prayer:

Dear Lord, if I get caught up thinking that a material object will make me happy, guide me back to what really matters. Guide me back to You.
