He then told them, “Watch out and be on guard against all greed because one’s life is not in the abundance of his possessions.”
Luke 12:15 HCSB
Father protect me from greedy and envious people, people who are desperate, and those who are so focused on their hurt that all they want to do is hurt others. Father protect me from myself during those times when I’m overly focused on money and material possessions, and fearful of things I can’t control, but not reliant upon You to resolve my problems.
Father I pray for the greedy, prideful, arrogant, and tormented. I pray for the sapsuckers who leach off of others and try to sap the Light out of Your children. I pray for the lazy and shiftless. Move them Father. Lift up those who wade in the waters of pity. Restore them to their greatness where their confidence is always in You first. I pray for these things today and always, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
There’s a lot of drama going on in the world, at your workplace, in your family, in your home, and within many of you. Some folks are fighting the darkness of greed, while others are succumbing to it or drowning in it. Some of you wake up, stroll through your day, and go to sleep with envy in your hearts. Some of you are fixated on revenge.
Kicking someone down or stabbing them in the back to elevate yourself gets you no higher than you already were, it’s just your perception that’s been altered. God has a way of leveling all playing fields, if not today trust me it will be one day.
Remember that what goes around always comes back around. Whether you do good or bad, the cycle of life that God has created, must always maintain balance and order. What you put out you receive. Doubt brings slow progress. Evil deeds bring negative consequences. Good deeds brings unlimited blessings. God gives us all choices. Each day you must make a choice.
