At the end of David’s life, he had made a good conclusion about what he had, and what it really meant. He said, 'It all comes from God.' If only I/we would hold that perspective, it would help us to live a more dedicated and contented life for God.
As I think about some need that I might have for which I need God to provide, there is really nothing very important that comes to mind. That thought makes me feel glad. What I have materially is not what I value most.
Father God, thank You that at this time in my life, I can feel content with the material possessions You have given us. I do thank You so much for my family and our relationships with each other! You are good, and You are faithful. AMEN
Respect for the Lord is good; it will last forever. The judgments of the Lord are true; they are completely right. Psalm 19
It All Comes From God
13 Now, our God, we thank you and praise your glorious name. 14 “These things did not really come from me and my people. Everything comes from you; we have given you back what you gave us. 15 We are like foreigners and strangers, as our ancestors were. Our time on earth is like a shadow. There is no hope. 16 LORD our God, we have gathered all this to build your Temple for worship to you. But everything has come from you; everything belongs to you. 17 I know, my God, that you test people’s hearts. You are happy when people do what is right. I was happy to give all these things, and I gave with an honest heart. Your people gathered here are happy to give to you, and I rejoice to see their giving. (1 Chronicles 29:13-17 NCV)
