“Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions” (Luke 12:15).
“This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God” (Luke 12:21).
Our God, who is with us in abundance!
Praise You, Lord, for allowing us to realize our spirits will eventually die if we only chase after the things that will never fulfill our satisfactions.
We repent for our foolishness, for following and chasing after great wealth although we are fully aware that wealth cannot satisfy our life. Allow us to live a beautiful, faithful life and help others to be abundant as well, as we receive Your grace.
We want to become rich only by relying on You. Help us to overcome our greediness. Help us to work hard and live a simple life instead of a materialistic one. Allow us to live a life without regret as we focus on Your mission work and on helping the poor. We want to glorify You. We pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
