In Proverbs 4:23, it says Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life. If money is my most precious treasure, that is where my heart is, and where all issues in my life – the struggles and the hard fought meagre ‘triumphs’ – arise. It’s the area I’d be most concerned about, the area that hits me the hardest. It’d be my weakest spot, the aspect in my life most vulnerable to attack. How stressful it would be, to live according to the number of bills in my pocket, or the rises and falls of my grades, or even, the number of calories I’m consuming! God doesn’t want to us live a life any less than the abundance He promises. He doesn’t want us to live life without the fullness of His love and His word. He doesn’t want us to settle for life void of His voice. And we, who are changed in His presence, are all the better for it.
