Consult Your Designer, Not Your Greed - August 19, 2019

Jesus warns, “Be on your guard against every form of greed” (Luke 12:15).  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 money; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income”  (Ecclesiastes 5:10).

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