None of us know what tomorrow will bring.

We prepare for "a rainy day,"  We have a "nest egg." We have medical insurance, life insurance, 401Ks, IRAs and monies set aside  for our retirement. We work and save and pinch our pennies to have more assests and fewer liabililties.

But are we like Mary or like Martha?

Have we ~

''sown much, and bring in little; eaten, but have not enough; drank, but  are not filled with drink; clothed, but there is none warm;

Have we ~ earned wages only to put it into a bag with holes." Haggai 1

When a professing believer  never seems to have enough and his money bag seems filled with holes, it is time to consider carefully his ways before the Lord and re-examine his priorities.

Knowing our God owns the cattle on a thousand hills and is well able to supply all our needs, since His Word tells us that "my God shall supply all your need [not greed] according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus"  AND since our heavenly Father knows that we have need [not greed]  of....even before we ask...

Wherein lies the problem?

Do we give of our best to the Master?
Are God’s kingdom and His righteousness our first concern?
Do we grieve over the sin in our lives?
Do we strive to live holy lives before our God and others?

Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine. Proverbs 3:9-10

Think of These Things.
