Today’s meditation is from Hebrews chapter 13 verse 5. Keep your life free from love of money and be content with what you have for he has said I will never leave you nor forsake you.

Well money is a sensitive subject isn’t it for almost everybody. Some of us feel that we don’t have enough and some of us feel that others have too much but we very rarely feel that we have just the right amount of money for us.

Almost everybody feels that their life could be improved in some way or other. And money is one of the ways in which we are able to improve our lives.

What is it to be in bondage to love of money? What or who are we worshipping? What consumes our thoughts, our minds? And it could be so many other things than money, couldn’t it? It could be a particular love. It could be a job. It could be a skill that we’ve been developing. And the thing that most fills our mind, most takes our attention, is very illuminating when we ask the question, what are we worshipping? What is most important to us?

Hebrews says, we’ve already received and have the best thing we ever could have, the best person, the one who truly deserves all our time and attention and our worship. Jesus, who said, I will never leave you, nor forsake you.

And, if we don’t feel like Jesus is the most important thing or person in our lives, all that tells us is, not that we need to beat ourselves up, but that there is room yet for Christ’s rule and reign to increase in our hearts.

Lord God, you are reassuring us by reminding us that Jesus is always with us. Please help us to cling to Him and not to let these other loves take over our most important love, which is for our Creator. Amen.
