"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."
Colossians 3:15
"Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, 'Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.' So we say with confidence, 'The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?'"
Hebrews 13:5-6

Many of my problems have arisen out of my discontentment when a perceived need I had was only an illusion. Instead of trusting God to provide something, I have gone in debt. All that did was put me in bondage to banks and financial institutions. The greatest lesson I ever had was when I learned to be content with what I have. Now, when I think I need something, all I have to do is talk with the Lord about it. If I have peace and the money to purchase it, I look for the best bargain. If I have peace but not enough money, I wait until He provides it or I have the cash. If I don’t have peace, I don’t get it. I thank God for meeting all of my real needs through Jesus Christ.
