Love and Temptation (2)


Love over Greed

Love cannot coexist with greed, it doesn’t insist on its own way. Love is selfless. Truly loving people means putting their well-being before your own. There is freedom in making your concern for other outshine the focus we put on ourselves. We must share in the unlimited wealth and provision of God. If God provides abundantly to you, it is because He has chosen you as a steward to share that with people He has put in your life. Keeping and stockpiling that provision causes you to ignore the plan God has for you. You will miss the abundant life God has for you and find yourself miserable among all of your possessions.


(1 Corinthians 13:4-7) Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things.
