Why does God want you broke?
“Someone in the crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” Jesus replied, “Man, who appointed me a judge or an arbiter between you?” Then he said to them, “Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.” – Luke 12:13-15
Have you ever considered how blessed Jesus or the early disciples were?
No money, no real home to speak of for many of them, always looked down upon, beaten and persecuted for the Faith they had in something they couldn’t see – How blessed is that?
Jesus had little to absolutely zero concern for the things of this world and He encouraged others to do likewise – why?
In not knowing – He is made known! In not having – He provides! In not being able – He shows His ability and willingness to provide for His children!
I just lost one of the best paying jobs I ever had – how blessed am I!
Why? Because after some human pain and agony on why me Lord – I let go and realized God has blessed me with inadequacy so that I might see and share in His Abundance!
Jesus knew the Truth and He was and Is the Truth – The Truth is that God, ABBA wants a One on one personal relationship with you and He wants that to be the most important source of comfort in your life!
Comfort based on anything but Him is No comfort at all! It’s temporary at best and addictive at the worst!
Human comfort and temporary comfort can come in many forms and this is why Jesus said to “Watch out!” Religion, money, drugs, sex, shopping – really anything that takes the place of a Love based relationship with Him can and will eventually rob you of life!
