BE ON YOUR GUARD

Jesus warns, “Be on your guard against every form of greed” (Luke 12:15 NASB).

John D. Rockefeller was asked, “How much money does it take to satisfy a man?” He answered, “Just a little more.” Wise was the one who wrote, “Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income” (Ecclesiastes 5:10 NIV).

Urge your mate to choose satisfaction over salary. Better to be married to a happy person with a thin wallet than a miserable person with a thick one. Besides, “a pretentious, showy life is an empty life; a plain and simple life is a full life” (Proverbs 13:7 MSG).

Pursue the virtue of contentment, because “godliness with contentment is great gain” (1 Timothy 6:6 NIV). Consult your design. Consult your Designer. But never consult your greed.
