Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 11/02/14

This week’s scripture is from Hebrews:

Jesus risen“Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.'”    (Hebrews 13:5)

The way of the Lord is the way of love. The troubles of man are many and most can be traced to his desire to want what he wishes he had. How much strife and sorrow has been brought into the world by the wanting of what others have. Yet what does anyone gain by coveting from others? What good does it do to gain the world but lose your soul?

The only thing worth coveting is the love of God. Remember the One who is faithful to supply our every need and provide for every circumstance. Let us be rich in the love of God; be at peace with what He has given; be thankful for His provision, and be blessed by His promise.

May the Lord richly bless you to be content in His love and grace.
