Ecclesiastes 5:10 Whoever loves money never has money enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with his income. This too is meaningless.
Dear Jesus, keep me from greed and materialism. Help me see when my desire for financial success is undermining my faith as it causes me to do things that aren’t good or right. Money can’t buy me success; it can’t buy me happiness; nor can it buy me forgiveness and eternal life. Help me see that the most precious commodity I own is your blood shed for me on the cross. Your blood bought me what money couldn’t buy – forgiveness and eternal life. Keep this truth ever before me. Through you I have all I need. Amen.
