Christians have righteousness, peace, and joy available to them through the Holy Spirit. The satisfaction that we are all looking for is found inside of us through knowing who we are in Christ. Happiness come from being able to get up in the morning liking yourself and going to bed at night liking yourself, without living under a cloud of guilt and condemnation. Peace is the reward of righteousness not of money. You can have you can have all kinds of things, but if you don’t have peace, you won’t have joy. People need right relationships more than they need money. If people are going to spend their lives climbing the ladder of success, they need to be sure their ladder is lending against the right building. It is sad when people spend their lives working to acquire things at expenses of their families, only to get to that top position and find it is one of the loneliest places they could me. It is tragic to spend your life chasing something you didn’t want after all.
First Timothy 6:17 says, As for the rich in this world, charge them not to be proud and arrogant and contemptuous of others, nor set their hopes on uncertain riches, but on God, Who richly and ceaselessly provides us with everything, for our enjoyment.
