GOD ’s blessing makes life rich; nothing we do can improve on God. (‭‭Prov 10:22‬) We all think we’ll just ‘know’ how to handle being rich – even though the lottery media shows us just how many families have been ripped apart through the process. The Apostle James tells us plainly: “Where do you think all these appalling wars and quarrels come from? Do you think they just happen? Think again. They come about because you want your own way, and fight for it deep inside yourselves. You lust for what you don’t have and are willing to kill to get it. You wouldn’t think of just asking God for it, would you? And why not? Because you know you’d be asking for what you have no right to. You’re spoiled children, each wanting your own way. You’re cheating on God. If all you want is your own way, flirting with the world every chance you get, you end up enemies of God and his way. And do you suppose God doesn’t care? The proverb has it that “he’s a fiercely jealous lover.” And what he gives in love is far better than anything else you’ll find. It’s common knowledge that “God goes against the willful proud; God gives grace to the willing humble.” (James‬ ‭4:1-6‬) Hmmm … probably best to wait and receive what our Papà wants to give us in Love. After all – He Loves us! X
