Focus: Beware of Covetousness

WORD FOR TODAY
The life of a man is not all about what he gets but also what he gives and how he lived his life!!!
************************************
Scriptural Reference
"And He said to them, "Take heed and beware of covetousness, for one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses." (Luke 12:15 NKJV)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sometimes I observe the lives of some people and discover that despite their quest for money and material possessions they couldn't achieve more than what they achieved and in a long run, left everything for people who didn't contribute much to their struggles. Some of these people find it very difficult to find the required satisfaction from their achievements.

With all they have, they still yearn for more even as they live in the guilt of living unrighteous lives. The life of the rich fool was cut short after all he gathered. Everything he worked for became another's. You are an eternal being, you have not come to stay here on earth. Trust God for your needs and live to please Him and have it at the back of your mind that it is only what you are able to pass on to eternity is what is truly your own.

Life is given to prepare for eternity. Great men with great certificates, titles, power, material possessions, have come and gone. Settle not for euphemism live with eternity consciousness having God in view.

Question For Meditation:
+ Is your life free from covetousness?

Prayer Point:

Main Emphasis:
Life is not all about what you will get but about doing God's will!!!

Have a Gracious Worship Experience!!!

All godly people should know that God has commissioned me to warn then that an asteroid is approaching the earth, and it will cause massive destruction of lives and property.

Repent and hide your craniums in Jesus, that is the only escape route.

This asteroid will hit the earth before 30th September 2019.

Matthew 24:30
And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.


All the tribes of the earth shall mourn at this great event

Ain't you tired of using generator and the cost of fueling and maintaining it?
With as low as #135,000 we can setup a 1kva solar power system that guarantees at least 12hours daily power supply.

Not surprised that "Beware of covetousness" has scared christians off this thread, even if it be the teaching of Jesus.

If it were "come and break the yoke of poverty in your life", this thread for don't get overflow.

It says a lot about how people hate to hear the Truth that would set them free indeed.

John 8:36 (KJV)

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.

God bless.

I noticed that too, the thread no even reach page 2,
no body likes the truth because it sounds bitter,

every one is guilty of this ojukokoro stuff, but for me this is how I distrract my minds from this covetousness,

I have siblings who are well successful in every area of their life, both home and outside, I just keep praying for them, they render help or not I just keep praying for them,

while for friends, in other to avoid this covetousness, the numbers of friends u keep matters a lot, and more importantly the type of discussion that takes place when u are together, ,for me I can count d numbers of friends I have on my finger tips,

them for social media, this is what makes people to poison their friends because of new achievement, this is what makes ladies go after people's husband, this is what makes boys steal or defraud people becus u want to be like emeka who just bought a camery,
best solution is to reduce the amount of time u spend on social media, it helps a lot,

this life is an individual race, nobody is competing with u, u want to know how? just ask ur friend what u wore day before yesterday, they can't even remember, and I am sure u bought those cloths just to prove or impress them that u have money, but they can't even remember watin u wear again,the truth is everybody is just busy sorting out the problem in their life, while you are looking for who to impress, y don't u impress ur family instead

let our mind be pure

1 Timothy 6:5-7 King James Version (KJV)


5 Perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.
6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.


But then, contentment does not equate to lack of ambition. Seek out the kingdom of God. His Spirit will give you guidance on how to put your talents to productive use, and as a result of obedience and diligence, progress, fulfillment and wealth will definitely come.

Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, every other thing shall be added unto you.

Unfortunately, the prosperity preachers will preach a corrupted message of seed sowing and all sorts of half-truths to deceive the ignorant ones.
