Worries


The blessing of the LORD brings wealth,
without painful toil for it.
Proverbs 10:22

Some have made of their existence a race to accumulate steadily as much money as possible to somehow ensure they will have covered all their needs when they quit work and stop collecting a paycheck. They are not only concerned with acquiring wealth, but also strive for not spending a single penny that is not fully justified. Unfortunately, these people on top of accumulating wealth, they build upon themselves the consequences of their misdeeds because their sole purpose has been the hoarding of capital and everything else has been relegated because of their ambition. Others do not aspire to become millionaires but live worried all the time, thinking how to achieve the necessary funds for their livelihood.

True riches are attained only through the blessing of God. He gives to each one according to his wonderful purpose, ie some get much and others get little, depending on their administrative capacities and therefore we should never worry about money because he cares for us. The riches that God gives us represent far beyond than simple monetary treasures. More important things such as love, joy, peace, wisdom, safety, health, purpose, stability and life itself are part of the treasure that God has prepared for the enjoyment of those who have placed their trust in the Lord’s name. Nobody, not even the wicked has been enriched by being concerned. So trust in the Lord and follow his advice: “But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” [1] Our heavenly Father knows our needs and he provides for them in abundance. To God alone be the glory!

[1] Matthew 6:33-34
