Daily D – Psalm 62:10
Psalm 62:10 Don’t make your living by extortion or put your hope in stealing. And if your wealth increases, don’t make it the center of your life. (NLT)
You can solve many problems before they begin by receiving a bit of ancient wisdom: Don’t take what isn’t yours. Don’t center your life around money.
John Wesley taught those he influenced to earn all they could, to give all they could, to save all they could. One thing to add is to make wise spending decisions. Get the best bang for the buck.
Money has a way of stimulating emotions. It can make us feel powerful or weak. It can lead to envy or pride.
Master your emotions. Master your money. Master your life.
I will follow God’s instructions and master how I think about and manage money.
Our Father, empower me to earn all that I can through honest and beneficial endeavors. Empower me to give as freely as I have received. Empower me to save wisely to take care of my family and others. Empower me to think about money in a way that leads to using it in a manner that honors you and serves others. Deliver me from envy and covetousness that makes me want to take what does not belong to me. Amen.

Psalm 139:17, 18 How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered! I can’t even count them; they outnumber the grains of sand! And when I wake up, you are still with me!
2 Corinthians 5:1-5 For we know that when this earthly tent we live in is taken down (that is, when we die and leave this earthly body), we will have a house in heaven, an eternal body made for us by God himself and not by human hands. We grow weary in our present bodies, and we long to put on our heavenly bodies like new clothing. For we will put on heavenly bodies; we will not be spirits without bodies. While we live in these earthly bodies, we groan and sigh, but it’s not that we want to die and get rid of these bodies that clothe us. Rather, we want to put on our new bodies so that these dying bodies will be swallowed up by life. God himself has prepared us for this, and as a guarantee he has given us his Holy Spirit.
1 Corinthians 10:13 The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.
