Liberty for Luxury

No Comments

When making purchases, understand the difference between what you desire and what you need. It’s extremely foolish to go into debt, or as I like to call it, slavery, for something that you don’t need. For example, you need transportation. You desire a brand new BMW. You need shelter, you do not need a 2500 square foot house, unless you’re the Duggars. You need to eat. You desire filet migon. You need clothing. You desire Ralph Lauren. You need to communicate. You desire an iphone. Get the picture?

The Apostle Paul told Timothy, to be content with food and clothing (1 Timothy 6:6-10). I’m not saying it’s wrong to have nice things, but there’s no way I’m trading liberty for luxury. Over and over I tell you, the rich rule over the poor and the borrower is slave to the lender (Proverbs 22:6). The principle remains the same for both small and large purchases. Know that God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus and He will give you the desire of your heart, if you delight yourself in Him (Philippians 4:19, Psalm 37:4). The Master of the universe does not need a bank to provide for His children. God owns the world and everything in it (Psalm 24:1, 50:12). Don’t believe He needs financing to take care of you. He’s bigger than Bank of America, Citi, Chase, the Federal Reserve, and the entire global economy. When He had over 5 thousand to feed, He took a kid’s sack lunch and made it more than enough (Matthew 14:13-21, Mark 6:34-44, Luke 9:10-17, John 6:1-13). The provider He was then, He is now. He doesn’t change (Malachi 3:6).
