13 Apr Hope in the Chaos of Tax Weekend
Is it hard for you to give your money away?
Most of us would say, ‘it all depends on who wants my money’. When it comes to paying for something that really benefits us or when giving to someone with a significant need, it is much easier to part with our money. How about when it comes to paying our taxes, it is often much harder to give it away,
The writer of the book of Hebrews, wanted to encourage his readers with a profound thought in regards to money: Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5.
Have you ever considered that the best way to protect your heart from greed is the experience of God’s presence in your life? Money, property, things are always going to come in and go out of our lives. But because of the cross, the promise of God is that He will never leave you or forsake you.
This week, when you purchase something, when you send your taxes in, when your paycheck comes, take a moment to reflect on and thank God that His presence and commitment to you is more valuable than anything money can buy.
