"Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good,
And delight yourself in abundance."
"Most middle-class Americans tend to worship their work, to work at their play and to play at their worship. As a result, their meanings and values are distorted. Their relationships disintegrate faster than they can keep them in repair, and their lifestyles resemble a cast of characters in search of a plot." (Gordon Dahl. Work, Play, and Worship in a Leisure-Oriented Society. Minneapolis: Augsburg-Fortress, 1972.)
Lord, never let this be said of me. May worship of You always be the priority in my life. Do not let me spend money on things that will never satisfy, but rather live simply and simply let You fulfill my desires. Let me feast on Your word and delight in the abundance I find there.
"But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you." (Matthew 6:33)
