Luke 12:15

And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consists not in the abundance of the things which he possesses.

Y les dijo: Estad atentos y guardaos de toda forma de avaricia; porque aun cuando alguien tenga abundancia, su vida no consiste en sus bienes.

It is very easy to get caught up in wanting what other people have; that process is not of God. There is more to life than what we have. Its all about Jesus: all of it.

Luke 12:15

And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consists not in the abundance of the things which he possesses.

Y les dijo: Estad atentos y guardaos de toda forma de avaricia; porque aun cuando alguien tenga abundancia, su vida no consiste en sus bienes.

The world leads to believe that possessing more is good. This is untrue. Material goods and piling them up are not the way to have happiness and joy. Sure, some are blessed with more than others, but it can be wrong to want and want. Our want should be more of our Savior. He will provide all we need. If He provides a lot, He is most likely asking you to use those extras to help others. God will show you if you just ask and seek.

2 Corinthians 8:14-15

But by an equality, that now at this time your abundance may be a supply for their want, that their abundance also may be a supply for your want: that there may be equality: As it is written, He that had gathered much had nothing over; and he that had gathered little had no lack.

en el momento actual vuestra abundancia suple la necesidad de ellos, para que también la abundancia de ellos supla vuestra necesidad, de modo que haya igualdad.Como está escrito: EL QUE recogió MUCHO, NO TUVO DEMASIADO; Y EL QUE recogió POCO, NO TUVO ESCASEZ.

If only all man lived by this, wouldn’t this world be much better? Instead, people have lived by greed. How much can be gained and put away and then we have those who have nothing. Let’s all look into our hearts and see if we are living by these principals, or by the lies the evil one has plastered upon mankind.
