Verse of the Day: A Psalmist’s Prayer

April 17, 2007


36 Give me an eagerness for your laws rather than a love for money!

Psalm 119:36 (NLT)

From the Life Application Bible :

In today’s world, people most often covet financial gain. Money represents power, influence, and success. For many people, money is a god. They think about little else. True, money can buy certain comforts and offer some security. But far more valuable than wealth is obedience to God because it is heavenly treasure rather than an earthly one (Luke 12:33). We should do what God wants, regardless of the financial implications. Make the psalmist’s prayer your own, asking God to turn your heart toward his statutes and not toward making money; it’s in your own best interest in the long run.
