The Antidote

Devotional for Saturday, January 06, 2018
This devotional is brought to you by Pacific Press® Publishing Association.

Many would say that the antidote to materialism is "giving." The call of Elisha shows the opposite of what happened with the rich young ruler. Elisha left his wealth and in the end asked only for a double portion of Elijah's spirit. How can one have this kind of true unselfishness?

     The real antidote is obtained " 'not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,' says the Lord Almighty" (Zechariah 4:6). The attraction of materialism is vanquished only by the Spirit of God. So simply turning to "giving" is not the antidote. We can only triumph over what this world has to offer when we allow God's Spirit to align our thoughts and actions with His loving and unselfish character.
