A Daily Devotion for Monday, May 9
1 Timothy 6:10
For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
This verse takes me right back to the verse from earlier in the week regarding serving two masters. (Matthew 6:24) If I am worried about making money, above all else, I am not seeking God. When I am truly seeking and serving God, I am not able to worry or stress over making more money. If I am chasing more income over all else, I am not concerning myself with whether I am on God’s path.
Holy Lord, I am thankful for your many blessings and for your grace. I have at points in my life lost my way but you did not let me go. You are my master, above any earthly power or treasure. Thank- you for showing me the way, more than once, back to you. Amen
