Scripture Reference: Joshua 6:19 KJV  But all the silver and gold and articles of bronze and iron are holy to the Lord; they shall go into the treasury of the Lord.

It is easy to look at what someone else has and wish we had what they have. We may have a version of what they have, but they have a better version. We have a car, but they have an SUV. We have a house, but they have one more bedroom in their house than we do. We can spend so much time drooling over someone else’s blessing that we forget to give thanks for our blessings. 

We need to remember that everything belongs to God and we do not need to despise small beginnings. Out of small things can come great victories. If we can praise Him for the $8.00 an hour job, we would have no problem praising Him for the $100.00 an hour job when it comes. We need to spend time thanking God for His provision that He has allowed us to manage.

Everyone and everything we encounter along our journey of life has purpose and meaning. Embrace where you are and what you have while preparing for where you are going and what you will have. Give God your heart and dedicate everything you have back to Him because it all belongs to Him.
