If you’ve got this, you’ve got everything.

Some years ago a man named Danny Simpson was arrested in Canada for robbing a bank of six thousand dollars. He was sent to prison, but the gun he used was sent to a museum. He’d used a pistol which turned out to be a rare example of a .45 calibre semi-automatic made by the Ross Rifle Company of Quebec City, in 1918. He hadn’t realised that that pistol was worth around one hundred thousand dollars – much more than what he’d stolen. If he had just known what he carried in his hand, he wouldn’t have robbed the bank.
Maybe that’s what the Bible means when it says: ‘Keep your lives free from the love of money, and be satisfied with what you have. For God has said, ‘I will never leave you; I will never abandon you.’ If you’ve got that, you’ve got everything.
