Devotion for September 18

Luke 16:13New International Version (NIV)

13 “No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.”

We, those who live in the United States, are rich beyond most peoples wildest dreams, 1 billion in China, 1.2 billion in India, most African nations, cannot read, write or buy groceries. Have very few if any civil liberties. Waste very little. Do not have drinking water, running water or hot water. How do we begin to measure wealth. We are rich, filthy rich I tell you. Now how do we show God we appreciate our wealth. Tithe? Good start. Share? Better yet. Tell others about the wealth we have in Jesus? You bet. Count your blessings citizens and stand for you freedoms.
