Inestimably rich!!

It was as I sat at my private devotions this morning, that I realised in a way that I hadn't done before, that I am inestimably rich!

Now before I start receiving all the begging e-mails, I had better make clear that I hadn't just noticed that my bank account had been mysteriously credited with billions of pounds! But what I do have is the love of God, and the love of my wife and daughters. And I wouldn't trade any of that for the combined wealth of the 100 financially-richest people in the world.

Every day, I experience the love of my immediate family - those with whom I have a direct blood relationship (and that included my dear parents while they were alive), and the woman whom I chose, and who agreed to choose me! And every day I experience the love of Almighty God - that love that brings salvation: forgiveness, justification, sanctification and, ultimately, glorification. And all of that is priceless!

I wasn't the greatest fan of the Beatles, although I thought that they made a lovely sound. But one of their songs came to mind this morning - "Money can't buy me love". Love, health, and a sense of self-worth are much more important than money. Now money does have a place in our modern economy. But it mustn't be thought of as the most important thing. It's the love of money that is at the root of all evil (I.Tim.6:10). "Therefore, let us offer through Jesus a continual sacrifice of praise to God, proclaiming our allegiance to His Name. And don't forget to do good and to share with those in need. These are the sacrifices that please God." (Heb 13:15-16).
