Two Distractions

“The Lord commonly gives riches to foolish people, to whom he gives nothing else.” –Martin Luther

I see two mentalities that divert attention away from God.  First, to be so consumed by what you don’t have that you despise those with more, thus you are ungrateful for how God has blessed you.  The other is self-absorption with attaining that you need not to rely on God; after all you are a “self-made man.”  What do you need a ‘god’ for?  My prayer is that you pursue God above your own happiness and trust in Him to supply all your needs. 

Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need  (Matthew 6:33, NLT).
