His divine power has given us everything needed for life and godliness.
2 Peter 1:3
Deep down, we know … we know … that we have all that we need and far more than we need. If we have a roof over our heads, a place to sleep in safety, and food for today and tomorrow, we have more than many of the people on the planet. God not only provides for our material and physical needs, he provides the wisdom, humility, love, and compassion that we need to live abundantly and in godliness.
There is nothing wrong with enjoying the beautiful and wonderful things available to us in the world—from art to music, from furnishings to travel. But we must always realize and give thanks that “His divine power has given us everything needed.”
