Hebrews 13:5 Keep Your Lives Free From The Love Of Money And Be Content With What You Have, Because God Has Said, "Never Will I Leave You; Never Will I Forsake You."
Our pain makes us reach out for things to find relief. Many things may appear to appease our need for relief. Material things are tangible. We can touch material things and feel the material thing in our hand. Because material things are tangible, and our need for relief is so demanding, we might believe material things bring us the relief we need. However, many times, material things can bring us grief instead of relief. Money can buy medication, counseling, expert advice, medical supplies, and many forms of help. However, what about the hurt in our heart, mind, and soul? We can numb our body, and even numb our mind with drugs. But what happens to us when we wake up from our drug-induced slumber? We must do all we can to count our blessings even in our poverty. We must make and maintain contact with Christ who is with us at all times, in all places, in all conditions. We are never alone. We are never forsaken.
