{Be Thankful 6}

{Day 6 - "The Best Things in Life are Free"}

Not only did I enjoy a walk and some beautiful weather with a couple of awesome people this morning....

But also at church today the topic was Materialism and the life of Joseph. Some awesome verses included...

"The world of the generous gets larger and larger; the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller. The one who blesses others is abundantly blessed." Proverbs 11:24-25 (The Message)

"Honor God with everything you own; give him the first and the best." Proverbs 3:9 (The Message)

"For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs." I Timothy 6:6-10

An interesting statistic that Dr. Don Wilson shared was that if we have "Food in your refrigerator, a roof...not a home but shelter...over your head, clothes on your back and $20 in your possession than you are richer than 75% of the world!" I was amazed by this fact! I often tell Ryan that I am thankful for every little thing we have...and was telling him this on the way into the service this morning. This message and service was truly something that was in my heart today!

During the fast approaching holiday season Be Thankful for the free things in life and don't let materialism be something that will alter your priorities and faith!
