Priceless Advice 

Priceless advice_canva.png

If you can't be satisfied with what you have, you will not be satisfied, no matter how much you have.

Jingle this ‘round in your pocket. For it's mighty rich advice, the counsel of Hebrews 13:5-6
 
"Be ye free..."

Now the flip side of that coin is: don't be enslaved! That's worthy counsel indeed.

"...from the love of money..."

It's a disclosure: the love of money would enslave you. Oh, you might fantasize about owning great wealth, but in fact, the love of money makes money own you – even before you get a'hold of it, it's already got a controlling, manipulative hold on you.

"content with such things as ye have."

This states what should be obvious – but how many perceive the obvious? If you can't be satisfied with what you have, you will not be satisfied, no matter how much you have. Whether you have just two coins to rub together, or mega-billions in the bank, you've already made up your mind: it's not enough. (See also
Ecclesiastes 5:10.)

"...for himself hath said, I will in no wise fail thee, neither will I in any wise forsake thee."

A false sense of security is intimated here: the human tendency to trust in riches. (See
Mark 10:24) It's a trust that will betray you. Jesus warns of the "deceitfulness of riches." (Matthew 13:22)

"So that with good courage we say, The Lord is my helper; I will not fear: What shall man do unto me?"

You need the Lord more than you need more money! The more you realize that fact, the sooner you're on the way to true wealth!

"Be ye free from the love of money; content with such things as ye have: for himself hath said, I will in no wise fail thee, neither will I in any wise forsake thee. So that with good courage we say, The Lord is my helper; I will not fear: What shall man do unto me?" (
Hebrews 13:5-6
