Truly God is good to the upright,
to those who are pure in heart.
But as for me, my feet had almost stumbled;
my steps had nearly slipped.
For I was envious of the arrogant;
I saw the prosperity of the wicked. (Psalm 73:1-3)
The People we look up to, Should we? Does their power make them whole? Do they know the power they have was given to them by God. Yet, God tell us, and Jesus taught us, to love all people. Even those who have power over us.
The poor pray for comfort, while the wealthy buy their comfort. So what does it mean to be wealthy? Does it mean that people love us more? Or does it mean we lose track of what we believe in?
Being wealthy is so much more then having money, it is about knowing that God really cares for us and wants us to know his love through Jesus.
I pray that we all would be rich with the love of God and have peace in knowing God cares for us no matter how much money we may have.
