Value of peace.

Strife comes with the deterioration of moral and ethical standards. Often, the more people have materially or monetarily, the more they can argue and fight over, causing strife. Although I haven’t watched the show “Billions,” the title tells me it’s about people fighting over money and power, strife.

“Poverty with peace is better than prosperity with strife.” Expositor’s Bible Commentary

Living a peace-filled life has more value than money. God’s not against prosperity, but He doesn’t want us fighting over it. The things of this world will pass away, but God’s peace never will. Just because you can afford something doesn’t mean you need it.

Living a quiet life makes me happy. No longer do I want strife. Simple living has many advantages. Not a fan of housework, our small house doesn’t require much upkeep. Easy meals keep us healthy. We have all we need and live strife free in our minimalist lifestyle. 

Value peace above all else; don’t let prosperity steal it.

Lord, forgive us for arguing over temporary things.  Please help us value peace over prosperity.  Thank You for providing all our needs for us.  Let us focus on what we do have instead of what we don’t have. IJNIP. Amen
