Keep your eyes open and guard against every sort of covetousness, because even when a person has an abundance his life does not result from the things he possesses.—Luke 12:15.
Our employer may offer us a promotion with better pay and other benefits. Or perhaps we realize that we can obtain greater financial r…ewards if we move to another country or region to find employment. At first, such opportunities might seem to be a blessing from Jehovah. But before we act on them, should we not examine our motives? Our primary concern should be, “How will my decision affect my relationship with Jehovah?” Satan’s system relentlessly promotes materialism. (1 John 2:15, 16) The Devil’s objective is to corrupt our hearts. Therefore, we need to be vigilant to identify and root out materialistic desires in our heart. (Rev. 3:15-17) Loyalty will help us to rely on Jehovah instead of ourselves. w08 8/15 2:6,
