Questions to Ponder:
Are we not to be rich? Is owning a lot a bad thing in the Lord’s eyes? No, Jacob owned a lot because the Lord blessed him. But Jacob knew that what he owned was a blessing of the Lord. Do you understand that what you own is a blessing of the Lord? Do you long for the riches? Or, do you long for the blessings of the Lord? How are those two different things?
Questions to Ponder
