Money has a way of becoming the most important thing in our life. We want to deny it, but the fact is money and wealth has obsessed humanity ever since we started assigning value to things. I don’t know about you, but I have to be very deliberate to keep money in its place in my heart and mind. I have to deliberately think about the role of money when I start wondering about my future, or when I look at how others live. I have to remind myself that God has always taken care of me and have faith that he always will.
You have neglected the more important matters of the law– justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former.
