Your adversary the devil prowls around 
like a roaring lion,
seeking someone to devour."

The Deceitfulness of Riches


BIBLE MEDITATION:

And these are they which are sown among thorns; 
such as hear the Word, And the cares of this world, 
and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, 
choke the Word, and it becometh unfruitful.” - Mark 4:18-19

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
There are many misconceptions and illusions about money. Money can buy some things but not others. It can buy marriage, but it can’t buy love. It can buy four years in college, but it can’t buy an education. Money can hire a doctor, but it can’t make you well. Money can take you almost anywhere except to heaven. It can buy almost anything except happiness. Some people think money means security. But there’s no security in money. It fades away.

ACTION POINT:
The Bible speaks of the deceitfulness of riches because earthly treasures can be wiped away so easily. Are you putting your trust and hope in things of eternal value?
