I believe that we all want to live a life of comfort–a life that is free from worry about finances. Pope Francis in one of his homilies tells us that this very, “culture of economic comfort deprives us of closeness to the Lord.”
Of course there is nothing wrong about wanting to live comfortably. Are we allowing our love for comfort supersede our love for God? Nothing should supersede our love for God. We can wish for a good life, but we must be careful that we do not wish for more than we actually need. More so, we must see to it that we do not become so engrossed with gaining financial freedom that we lose sight of God’s love.
We must not allow ourselves to be too attached and obsessed with gaining comforts in this world that we miss out on gaining heavenly treasures.
Do not let the economic turmoil of the world pull you away from God. As He said in Hebrews 13:5, “Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.” Just remember that nothing should supersede our love for God, and that’s that.
