Dec 10 – Hungry for Money

While Wayne Klinkel and his wife were enjoying a meal at a restaurant, their five year old golden retriever was having a meal of his own, in the family car. When they returned to the car, they found out that Sundance had devoured most of five one hundred dollar b ills. Fortunately for them, when Klinkel painstakingly gathered and assembled the parts of the bills, the US Treasury reimbursed them for the loss. Like this dog, it is very common for people to develop an insatiable desire for money the accumulation of riches becomes the be-all and end-all of their lives and crowds out more important things. The bible warns, command those who are rich …not to …trust in uncertain riches but in the living God.” Only Jesus can give us true satisfaction in this life and prepare us for the life to come. He invites, “Let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.”
