    God, thank you for providing for your children. You know that my needs are simple. I do not wish for a Mcmansion, expensive clothes, jewelry, or cars. Never did, never will. I only want to have enough to live decently, to provide for those I love, to help those who are in need, and to have you, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit in my life. I love you, Heavenly Father.

    I believe the word "riches" is teaching us that whatever comes from God is good. Our circumstances in essence no matter how strange or unwanted, God's Holy Spirit indicates it is rich by Christ Jesus. The Resurrected Saviour is out hope that whatever rich comes our way is fulfilled by His Holy Spirit. We just may be blind to the glory attached to it because we so often walk in the flesh. Plus glory of Christ Jesus is so intimately revealed that we are lucky if we are chosen to see it. most of us just hear about it. That is where we must persevere in worship because we have the hope one day we might see those "riches in glory."

    V. 22 - All the saints salute you ..........of Caesar's household. That just sent chills of joy up my spine when I first read it. In the GREAT MAN'S house, saints were busy praying for others living and working there. I love His Word; it has so many little 'things' we miss in our general reading and skipping to our favorite verses. It's these 'hidden' things HE shows us.
