Balanced blessings.

Agur, the author of today’s verse, doesn’t want anything to take him away from his relationship with God. To draw closer to his Lord, Agur asks for divine help to prevent him from lying or becoming obsessed with possessing or wanting material things.

When in want, we can become desperate, willing to do anything to meet our needs. On the other hand, when we have plenty, we can forget who provided our blessings to us. Both situations bring us out of alignment with God, causing division in our relationship.

However, when we develop an attitude of gratitude, realizing circumstances can change instantly helps us stay balanced. In all situations, we can find something to give God praise. Corrie Ten Boom, a Holocaust survivor, thanked the Lord for fleas in her cell because they kept the guards away, allowing her and fellow inmates to study the Bible.

Keeping the Son in our eyes will help us maintain a centered lifestyle, develop integrity, and balance our blessings with an attitude of gratitude.

Lord, forgive us for getting caught up in worldly possessions. Help us develop an attitude of gratitude as we stay focused on You. Let us become more like Jesus every day. IJNIP. Amen
