Rooting out the Spiritual Disease of Worshipping Worldly Riches

Luke 16:13
13 "No servant can serve two masters.
The servant will hate one master and love the other,
or will follow one master and refuse to follow the other.
You cannot serve both God and worldly riches."
(New Century Bible)

There is nothing wrong with having worldly riches.
But a problem can arise if Worldly Riches become an idol in our heart and they begin to have us instead of us having them.
God cannot help us if HE is not first in our focus.

The problem with worshipping Worldly Riches is that I set things in motion for my descendants to become beggars:

This is what the Prophet David observed:
Psalms 37:25
I have been young and now I am old.
And in all my years I have never seen the Lord forsake a man who loves him;
nor have I seen the children of the godly go hungry.
(The Living Bible)

David's son, Solomon was the richest man in the world at the time he lived.
This is what he had to say:

Proverbs 28:
19 A hard worker has plenty of food,
but a person who chases fantasies ends up in poverty.
New Living Bible.

Proverbs 28:
22 Greedy people try to get rich quick
but don't realize they're headed for poverty.
New Living Bible.

Proverbs 13:
18 If you ignore criticism, you will end in poverty and disgrace;
if you accept correction, you will be honored.
New Living Bible.

Proverbs 11:
24 There is one who scatters, yet increases more;
And there is one who withholds more than is right,
But it leads to poverty.
25 The generous soul will be made rich,
And he who waters will also be watered himself.
New King James Bible.

Father, please rescue me from loving Worldly Riches.
My desire is to put YOU first in my life and focus.
If I have put other things before YOU, Lord, I ask that You forgive me and help me to set my life in order in this area.
Then I know that I will open the door for Your blessings to flow into my life.
Thank You, Lord,   in Jesus' name,

There's a new thought here tomorrow.
See you then, God willing!

Psalm 107:
17 Some fools turned against God and suffered for the evil they did.
18 They refused to eat anything, so they almost died.
19 In their misery they cried out to the LORD, and he saved them from their troubles.
20 God gave the command and healed them, so they were saved from dying.
21 Let them give thanks to the LORD for his love and for the miracles he does for people.
22 Let them offer sacrifices to thank him. With joy they should tell what he has done.
(New Century Bible)
