Luke 12:18

'...I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones...'

You, Lord, are the provider of every good and perfect gift. And yet we have misunderstood. We've imagined that stuff is for accumulating - the more the merrier, we've told ourselves. The harsh reality is plain for all to see though; 'more' is never enough. The more we have, the more we want. And as we follow 'more' the prison doors slam behind us. Very soon we're trapped.

Living Lord, show us a better way, we pray. Teach us to be satisfied with what we have and show us again the joy of giving and sharing of our abundance. Show us how to be content to live within our means and to say 'no' to that which glitters but is not gold.

We pray in Jesus' name, AMEN
