Prayer of Modesty

“Two things I ask of you, LORD; do not refuse me before I die: Keep falsehood and lies from me; give me neither poverty nor riches, but give me only my daily bread. Otherwise I, may have too much and disown you and say, ‘Who is the LORD?’ Or I may become poor and steal and so dishonor the name of my God. Proverbs 30:7-9

It’s too easy to think that God is here to deliver us to wealth and a life without roadblocks. Remember that God will always provide what’s necessary for us to grow in Him. Our riches are not here on Earth but in the eternal, in Heaven.
