Scripture: Luke 16:14
The Pharisees, who were money-lovers, heard all this and sneered at Jesus.
Thought for the Day: I read those words, and my first reaction is to shake my head and belittle such selfish and misguided people. Yet then I walk into my closet, and I am confronted by a plethora of clothes hanging there that have known very little use. How much is my life driven by money, and the fear of not having it.? I don’t know if I am having a love-affair with money, but there might be some puppy love or some unhealthy infatuation. Before making the Pharisees the poster-children of money-loving selfishness, it might be good for us to do some self-evaluation. I guess I shouldn’t put this on any of my readers. You all might be doing very well, so I will end this by letting you know that I shall spend some time reflecting and probably confessing.
Prayer: Through your grace, O Lord, provide me the courage to do some self evaluation. Even when it causes some discomfort, help me to be honest where money is prioritized above you. Amen.
