Better is contentment and peace than great wealth with strife and turmoil.
Each of us, to one degree or another, wants to increase, to prosper, to succeed in life. Unfortunately, many make financial gain their God and reap a life of toil and trouble.
To fear God is the beginning of wisdom and leads, not only to heart peace and contentment, but leads to material gain also.
“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”
It is the Lord who gives the power to get wealth with a life filled with righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost.
In other words, putting God first sets everything else in order and makes material gain a by product of a purposeful, fulfilling life.
