15:And he said to them, “Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.”
Loving Father, keep me from covetousness, carnal behaviour, and envying the wicked who seem to have everything in this world, while so many of Your children often seem to be so deprived.
Help me to realise how short this life is and the futility of living for earthly possessions. Help me to live my life in spirit and truth so that by dying to self, I live for Christ and to His praise and glory, which will produce a great reward in heaven. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
