Do You Desire to be Rich?

Do you know what you are passionate about in life? Well, one way to find out is to determine what drives you each day. What do you think of? What do you do? How do you spend your time and your money? Once you begin to answer these questions, you will begin to see what you are passionate about. There are scriptures in the Bible that warn of the dangers of being rich and having a lot of money. Yes, those are much needed warnings, but did you know that we can have riches in our lives that have take us away from Jesus, but have nothing to do with money?

In 1 Timothy 6:9-10 we read, “But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. 10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.”

Sometimes those “riches” that we long for in our lives have nothing to do with money, but they still lead to us drawing away from the Lord. As I asked in the beginning, “what are you passionate about in life”. Is it money? Is it activities? Is it material possessions? Is it Jesus?

I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
