Often we judge ourselves and others by the amount of money we have or the materialstic things we own. We are very much like Gideon. This was a man that was full of doubts. (judges 6:15) And he said unto him, Oh my Lord, wherewith shall I save Israel? behold, my family is poor in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father's house.

With nothing to back him but Gods help and love, he became one of the greatest prophets of all time. We need to be more like Gideon and go to God when we feel we are worthless and cannot achieve what we must in life.

Christins often worry about not have a nice home and good china to serve those who come into their homes for bible worship. They don't have the right type of food or drink to serve them or the nicest furniture to sit on. Well, if they are there to worship God and read his word with you, that kind of stuff will not matter. I have had people in my home discussing the bible and all I had to offer was coffee and a few cookies to go with it. They did not mind. (Peter1:49)Use hospitality one to another without grudging.

You have God. He is all you need. I am often happy just looking up the verses and discussing them with others who care about His word.


  1. I really liked this post Garnet. We are far from wealthy. And I know who my real friends are! They don't care as long as we enjoy each others company.

  2. Hi Sweetie, I just left your other site.
    What a lovely post this is Garnet and so very true. If people are coming to your home to see your furniture then who would even want them?
    Material worldly things nor money will get us into heave....if one has extra then I believe one should share but for those of us who live on a budget and God's word well we are blessed indeed with a strong faith that will see us through anything.....:-) Hugs

  3. Wise words. I have worried far too much about not having things just so. Thanks for the encouragement. :)

  4. You are welcome Robyn. *s* We all need words of encouragement at times.

  5. Absolutely spot on, this is so true, yet we are all guilty of it to an extent. (Nearly all?)
