The Challenge Of Riches

November 23, 2012

While our family was living in Kenya in the 1980s, we drove a young woman from Nairobi to visit her parents who lived near Lake Victoria. On the way, we stopped in the city of Kisumu to leave our luggage at a hotel where we would stay after taking her home. When our friend saw our hotel room that we considered an average-size room with two beds, she said, “All this for only five of you?” What we considered ordinary, she saw as luxurious. Riches are relative, and some of us who live in prosperous nations have a tendency to complain about a standard of living that others would gladly embrace.

Among the followers of Christ in Ephesus, some had more money than others. To Timothy, their pastor, Paul wrote, “Command those who are rich in this present age not to be haughty, nor to trust in uncertain riches but in the living God, who gives us richly all things to enjoy” (1 Tim. 6:17). Paul urged them to “be rich in good works, ready to give, willing to share” (v.18).

Our natural tendency is to grasp what we have instead of freely giving to those in need. The challenge of riches is living with thankful hearts to God and open hands to others.

One grace each child of God can show
Is giving from a willing heart;
Yet, if we wait till riches grow,
It may be that we’ll never start. —D. DeHaan
We make a living by what we get;
we make a life by what we give.

Read: 1 Timothy 6:6-10,17-19

Command those who are rich in this present age not to . . . trust in uncertain riches but in the living God. —1 Timothy 6:17
Bible in a Year:
1 Corinthians 1-4

Hey, Luv.

Glad you enjoyed the music.

How did dinner go? Ms. B invited me via yesterday's thread, but unfortunately I'm 1100 miles from her house.

Just finished a nice Thanksgiving dinner, just the three of us. We are thankful.

Did you get enough to eat? Good company?

Glad you are well on the mend. Did you manage to work all day this week? Or limited hours? Did you cook or your mom?

Had good food and company. Our family gatherings are getting smaller as siblings now have kids and grandkids they go to instead. Saw one son this morning but didn’t get to see my oldest and his family. They visit DIL’s family for dinner.

But my mother still cooks as if she expects the large crowd, so there was a lot of leftovers. Mr. Beachy is not going to be happy as I only brought home some kale. LOL

Didn’t over eat and got home early enough to rest and enjoy an evening cup of coffee.

How about you?

I spent this one alone, as usual. They don’t make tiny turkeys, so I whipped up a pasta dish for the holiday.

Dinner was great! I didn’t have to lift a finger and got everything I wanted! I even brought a nice piece of pecan pie home and have eaten 1/2 of it this evening.

All in all a very nice day! Hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful, too!

Too bad you had to do it alone. But I bet the pasta was good.

I noticed that the elderly gent next door to us was home alone when I returned. I was quite surprised cause his family is usually in and out all the time. I was expecting to see them all gathered there.
