St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

February 19

"People who long to be rich are prey to temptation." (1 Timothy 6: 9)

Most of us think that life would be easier if we had more money. But the Bible constantly warns about the dangers of wealth, because it can distract us from what is really important. If we spend our time pursuing wealth as an end in itself we find that love of god and neighbour can get squeezed out. If we are content with what we have, we can be truly blessed.

Lord, help us to value the riches of human relationships and your love more than money. Help us to be content with what we have. Amen.
