Today Reminder – 28 October 2016

A reminder for today
You can be sure that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. For a greedy person is an idolater, worshiping the things of this world.(Ephesians 5:5)

How are you, my friend? It is yet another Friday and another weekend that lies ahead. I love Fridays and I guess a lot of you too. As Friday starts you get that weekend feeling and your body goes into relax mode. You mind takes a breather and your heart takes a break. In today’s world most people work on weekends and in so many updates we spend just as much time working on a weekend than we work in the week. As we rush to get things done we fight through weekends to deliver. So your body goes into weekend mode but your mind goes into overdrive, because now it must pull things together when the body wants to rest. Greed is such a terrible thing and it can drive people insane. With greed comes so many bad things and we must be careful that we do not get ourselves tangled in it. Greed is purely an intense and selfish desire for something, especially wealth, power, or food. Wealth and power is something so many desires and it can make a good man a very bad man. So many lives have been lost, because of someones greed and lust for power. 

Steer away from it and focus your desires on God. Desire more of God and more time with Him. Desire to be more like Jesus and to be able to walk in His footsteps. Desire a pure heart and strong moral compass. Desire the things of heaven then the things of this earth will have no meaning for you. Desire to be good to other and good in all your relationships then you will never be embarrassed. Desire to stand for what is right then the enemy will fall in all their attempts. Desire a heart free from the greed of man and you will prosper in all that is God.

So today my challenge is simple – do not be greedy. I sound simple yet it can be a hard one. So I challenge you to steer away from greed and be contempt.

Lord, I pray that you will fill our hearts with all of you so that we will not be affected by greed, instead we will seek you above all. In Jesus name.

Have an awesome day dear friend of Jesus.
