As Your child, I have been blessed with every blessing. You have supplied all my needs abundantly. To simply say, “Thank You” is insufficient. Your goodness overwhelms me.
Unfortunately, it is easy to become enamored with the riches this world has to offer. When I become focused on the world’s wealth…it replaces You as my god. America has for years now chased the material things this world has to offer…making material gain an idol. Throughout recorded history, You have shown Your power over pagan idols. Now, You have begun to demonstrate Your power to demolish this American idol. Your judgment is justly deserved. But is crushing so many as our artificial wealth evaporates. Please protect the innocent and the poor from Your wrath.
In this time of need, teach me generosity.
Scripture: “Dear children, keep away from anything that might take God’s place in your hearts. I John 5:21
