I’m all you need . . .

Make sure that your character is free from the love of money, being content with what you have;
for He Himself has said, “I will never desert you, nor will I ever forsake you.”
Hebrews 13:5

Images and ads bombard you every day about the latest and greatest music device, phones, and computers. advertisers are smart. They try to convince you that buying these things will bring you happiness and cool friends. But friendship with Me is the most valuable gift you can ever have because it can never be taken away. Never. Avoid letting jealousy into your heart. It only leads to unhappiness. Instead, be thankful for all I’ve given you, including My life.

Now What? Pray: “Father, you have given so much to me. I lose sight of all my blessings and forget that many people on this earth would consider me wealthy. I release the jealousy I feel for the things my friends have, and I thank you for the physical and spiritual gifts you’ve placed in my life. Help me use all I have to bring honor to your name.”
