Proverbs 1:17, 19 (NLT) If a bird sees a trap being set, it knows to stay away- Such is the fate of all who are greedy for money; it robs them of life.
Do you ever feel overwhelmed when dealing with your finances? Does it feel like you are running around without results in your life, just trying to keep up? If you aren’t careful, your finances can become a trap that dictates your mood and takes control of your life. In this fast-paced world, it is easy to become addicted to accomplishments without having a real purpose. If you are chasing money for money’s sake, you will find that you never have enough.
Whether you are in a comfortable financial position or find yourself with a shortfall, remember that money, although a necessary part of life, is not something to be held in such high esteem that it causes you to neglect the things that are eternal. It can be either a blessing or a curse, depending on the place you choose give it in your life.
Point to ponder- Have your finances become an unhealthy part of your daily life, wielding more power over you than they should? What can you do to keep your finances in the right perspective? Be careful of the financial trappings.
