Verse of the Day: Life is Not Measured by What We Have

15 Then he said, “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.”

Luke 12:15 (NLT)

From the Life Application Bible:

Jesus says that the good life has nothing to do with being wealthy, so be on guard against greed (desire for what we don’t have). This is the exact opposite of what society usually says. Advertisers spend millions of dollars to entice us to think that if we buy more and more of their products, we will be happier, more fulfilled, more comfortable. How do you respond to the constant pressure to buy? Learn to tune out expensive enticements and concentrate instead on the truly fulfilled life – living in a relationship with God and doing his work.
