Then one from the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” But he said to him, “Man, who made me a judge or an arbitrator over you?” And he said to them, “Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses.” (Luke 12:13-15)
Holy Spirit, please change our hearts and minds about possessing things. Give us a right understanding of what is really important to have — a close walk with Jesus and knowing the Father’s love for us. Thank you.
A word received: I AM your strength.
