Prosperity v. Daily Bread

Proverbs 30:7-9

7 “Two things I ask of you, O LORD; do not refuse me before I die: 8 Keep falsehood and lies far from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. 9 Otherwise, I may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the LORD ?’  Or I may become poor and steal, and so dishonor the name of my God.

Whoa…how many of us pray this prayer?  We love to pray for prosperity…but how many of us actually pray that God only gives us what we need to survive?..NOT more money in our 401k and our personal savings…NOT more houses and cars and other material trinkets.  But what if we prayed for God to only give us our daily bread, or only what we need to live?  Otherwise we become rooted in our greed and idolize our materialistic things/wealth and forget what Christ has already done for us.

I’m just sayin’

Peace & Love-
