It is amazing what a person will do to provide for their family or to obtain wealth so that they can have what they want. Working overtime, working two jobs, working long hours and weekend. It is equally amazing what our pride prevents us from doing in order to save ourselves. Saying the words and making the heart choice that will save us ends up being much more difficult than working 60 hours a week.
Lord, help me to see that my salvation is at least equally important as providing for my earthly needs.
