Similar to the Levities in the book of Joshua, as believers in Christ we are called to serve God without being distracted by the things of this world. When we find ourselves envious of others, whether it be their physical possessions, relationships, or careers, we can find comfort in knowing that the Lord is our inheritance. Pastor Justin Detmers reminds us that the enoughness of God is enough for us and that our focus should be on sharing the Gospel with the people He has placed in our lives, not on what we have.
From one man he has made every nationality to live over the whole earth and has determined their appointed times and the boundaries of where they live. He did this so that they might seek God, and perhaps they might reach out and find him, though he is not far from each one of us.
