Daily Digest #243

You shall not covet . . . anything that is your neighbor’s. —Exodus 20:17

I was just reading The Heart of Contentment (pdf file from RBC Ministries) last night before I went to bed. I was having these feelings of uncertainty and impatience again that I resorted to reading this material. And it truly helped. It states what covetousness means and its dangers. It also serves as an awakening on how we should treat money and all other material things. It closes with Hebrews 13:5-6: Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, "Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?"

Let us pray. May we grow a heart of contentment. May we trust that God will provide all our needs. May we realize and value what is enough, what has been entrusted to us at the moment. Pray always.
