Topic: The Deceitfulness of Riches
TODAY: Thursday 20 April, 2017
SCRIPTURE: …and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. Matthew 13:22b
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Prosperity without integrity equals vanity; any fortune devoid of principles has no future.
Sometime ago, I heard the story of a young man who was very desperate to get rich. This desperation led him to join an occult. In the occult, he was asked to bring a cock as sacrifice, immediately they killed the cock, his father died. At another point, he was asked to bring another cock; as soon as the second cock was killed, his mother died. After sometime, they asked him to bring another cock, immediately they killed the third cock, his sister died.
At this point, he realized that he was the person responsible for the death of his family members through those sacrifices. So, he rushed to the Church for deliverance, but then he had already lost his mother, father and sister including everything he had; he was rendered a pauper. What a miserable life!
The fact is, the devil is not an option to get rich; any offer from satan is an invitation unto calamity and a trap unto disaster.
Prosperity without integrity equals vanity; any fortune devoid of principles has no future. Wealth without Christ is a waste. So, determine to make God the essence of your wealth acquisition.
Remember this: Prosperity without integrity equals vanity; any fortune devoid of principles has no future.
1. Make this declaration your personal conviction and principle, ‘Whatever God cannot give me, I do not need it’.
2. Make God the Centre of your resources; let God be the reason you want to be rich.
PRAYER: LORD, I thank You for Your Word to me today. Deliver me from the god of mammon and grant me the grace to serve You with my resources, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
