Every child of God; must personally endeavour not to be caught in the web of worldliness and insatiable appetite for material things like Esau, Gehazi and Judas Iscariot. You must learn to be contented with what you have in this world.
The Church of Jesus Christ, in this dispensation has been robbed of godliness due to lack of contentment. The desperation many so called children of God exhibit in their search of money has deprived them of living a godly life. The moment a person makes up his mind to focus his passion and life on seeking after the things of God, he becomes very content with life. There are lots of people who are not enjoying their lives because they are being consumed with the mundane things of this world. As a child of God, your focus and attention should centre on the Word of God which will help you live life with a sense of fulfilment. It is not the abundance of what you have; that determines the joy you get in life. When others are running after money and doing terrible and inordinate things for money, seek the wisdom of God. Bible says in proverbs 8 vs 10 Receive my instruction, and not silver; and knowledge rather than choice gold. Go for wisdom; don’t let money be your motivation. Money is a tool. If you function in divine wisdom, money will come to
you, because money responds to wisdom.

There are people, who focus on gaining worldly possessions, but those who know the essence of life, will focus on things of the spirit and they will not allow the lust of this world to consume their hearts. It is no news that the greatest problem of man is greed; it is also the major cause of underdevelopment in many nations, as those that have been entrusted with the resources are continually greedily trying to acquire more money. Maintain a good conscience. It is not what you have in the bank that counts; it’s who you are on the inside that really counts. So be contented with what you have, for God is more than able to supply all your needs, as you put your trust in Him and follow His instructions today.
