Wednesday, February 25 — Psalm 30:6–12
2 Chronicles 33:1–34:7; Acts 26:2–14
Woe to him who piles up stolen goods and makes himself wealthy by extortion! How long must this go on? Habakkuk 2:6 (NIV)
Paul wrote: Aspire to live quietly, to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands. 1 Thessalonians 4:11
Lord Jesus, you lead us by example against a life of excess. Make us comfortable with less in a society that says “more.” Let us live our lives with the goal of praising you, not of being praised for what we have. Remind us whose we are. Amen.
