“A man’s life does not consist in the abundance of things he possesses.”

Bread A man’s life does not consist in the abundance of things he possesses.” — Jesus of Nazareth
But by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God shall he live, and neither shall he thirst for the Lord will delight in him and shall fill him. A table shall he spread before him in the presence of his enemies and with the finest of wheat he will eat and shall not want.

    Thanks for this verse, I thought it was in Luke, not sure. I was trying to find it in God’s Word. It is truly a beautiful verse.
    Luke 12:15 gives an example of how God’s Word/Truth sets us free. Jesus said in John 8:32 “The Truth shall set you free.” I’ve known that was true, but one example of that is realizing that life does not consist in the abundance of things possessed. There are of course many other verses in God’s Word, but Luke 12:15 is one example of how God’s Truth sets us free.
