BIBLE VERSE FOR SATURDAY
Saturday, October 26, 2019
Better is a little with the fear of the LORD, than great treasure with trouble.
William Wilberforce was a titan--a Christian statesman in England whose lifelong efforts led to the abolition of the slave trade in the British Empire. But late in his life, Wilberforce faced personal financial disaster. He had invested much of his fortune trying to help his son, but the enterprise failed and Wilberforce lost his home. The great man took long walks, praying and thinking over his losses. He decided that God had allowed him to live long enough to demonstrate to others that "a man can be happy without a fortune, as with one."
Regardless of our earthly possessions, we can always rely on Christ. It's wonderful when we can pay our bills and have some extra funds in the bank, and it's reassuring to feel our future is financially secure. But sometimes we incur losses on face insufficient funds. In such times God's grace is all sufficient, and in some way He will provide. In the meantime, we can count our blessings, live a life of love, and claim the verse that says, "Better is a dinner of herbs where love is, than a fated calf with hatred." (Proverbs 15:17)
