Mid Week Devotional With Chris Chase
"A man will be satisfied with good by the fruit of his words, and the deeds of a man's hands will return to him." (Proverbs 12:14) We may think we're immune to the endless litany of television commercials, newspaper ads, our friends' new gadgets, & the constant admonition to spend like there's no tomorrow, but we Christians should be alert to how Satan tempts us with the temporal. A doctrinal danger is substituting the temporal for the eternal. A personal danger is trying to impress everyone instead of evangelizing. The economic danger is spending more than you have or make. The psychological danger is believing your purchase will make things "all right." Instead of buying your way into the poor house, make Hebrews 12:3 your aim: "Consider Him . . . so that you may not grow weary and lose heart."
