Max Lucado – Surviving Prosperity

 

Listen to Today’s Devotion

Are you “rich in this present age”?  Almost half the world lives on less than $2.50 a day.  If your income is higher, then you are rich, and your affluence demands double vigilance.

How can a person survive prosperity?  First of all, do not be haughty.  Do not think for a moment that you had anything to do with your accumulation of wealth.  Money is an untrustworthy foundation.  The United States economy endured ten recessions between 1948 and 2001.

Don’t trust money; trust God.  He owns everything and gives us all things to enjoy.  Move from the fear of scarcity to the comfort of provision.  “Do good … be rich in good works, ready to give and willing to share” (1 Timothy 6:18).
