Henry Ford said, “If money is your hope for independence you will never have it.” Money brings temporary physical comfort, little else. It’s a mirage.
The mirage keeps moving ahead of us. So we keep saying, “When I get X amount of money, I will do this or that, be able to pay off debts, be free to serve, to take more time, to have more means to help.”
By such a mirage, Satan keeps moving our action forward into a vague and shimmering future, always just out of reach.
This is a part of the deceitfulness of riches which chokes the seed of the word in our hearts and causes us to produce nothing (Matthew 13.22; Mark 4.9).
Hold this thought: When making plans, make money your last consideration.
God who supplies our every need, may you be glorified in our dependence upon you. Make money be a tool for the kingdom, not an excuse for inaction.
