Hebrews 13:5-6The Message (MSG)
5-6 Don’t be obsessed with getting more material things. Be relaxed with what you have. Since God assured us, “I’ll never let you down, never walk off and leave you,” we can boldly quote,
God is there, ready to help;
I’m fearless no matter what.
Who or what can get to me?
There was a couple on television with a touching story to tell. They had now been married for 10 years. However, earlier on in the marriage things weren’t as good as they are now.
The husband had lost his job a few months after they got married. A humbling experience indeed having your wife bring home the bacon after you promised to take care of her. For two years he went to interview after interview. To no avail did he find a job.
He sat on the porch and cried one night. His wife overheard him and consoled him. Then she told him, ” I know you’re frustrated and you feel like you’re not a man. But baby I’d rather have a man trying for two years to get a job than have a man that has a job for two years that I’m not happy with. It’s not about the money. I love you, for better or for worse.”
A few weeks later a job called the husband back.
I charge us today to value God as he should be valued just as this woman did her husband. I also challenge us to value each other in the same manner. Know your self worth today and show others what they are worth to you. Be blessed!
