Key Lime Pancakes Recipe

You can’t Buy it & Key Lime Pancakes

Luke 12:15 (easy)

Then he said to all the people, ‘Be very careful! Do not want more things than you really need. The life of a person is worth more than just the things that he has. Even if he is very rich, that is still true.’

Do you ever feel bombarded with stuff? Don’t get me wrong; I need to read this verse over and over again, and be reminded of this message 20+ times per day. I love stuff. I love to shop. My husband jokingly says that I keep the economy going on my own.

We live in a world that’s full of consumption. You can’t even open social media right now without reading about all the amazing deals, and seeing all of your fashion blogger friends favorite finds. And it’s so easy to get completely wrapped up in all of it.

But, have you ever asked yourself what you’re actually shopping for? There’s no sale on self-worth. There’s no end-cap or display for acceptance. Do you know how many times I’ve found myself wandering through the aisles of a store, or scrolling through a page of rompers, looking for something I’ll never be able to find?

Jesus reminds us that it doesn’t matter what we have; rich or poor, we’re loved exactly the same. We aren’t judged or measured by what’s in our homes, our closets, or our garages. We were made to be more than consumers. We’re selling ourselves short by attempting to earn our worth and value in department stores and virtual shopping carts.

And I’m not criticizing you; please don’t think that for a second. If I haven’t made it clear yet, this is something I struggle with day in and day out. I really like things. But, it turns out that it’s not the things that I actually enjoy; that’s evidenced by the fact that as soon I click “purchase”, I forget all about my new finds. It’s the glimmer of hope that I have when I imagine myself wearing that new outfit, it’s the confidence I think I feel when I think about driving that beautiful, new car. But that vision fades just as quickly as it comes.

Friend, Jesus sees all of you. He sees what’s on the inside. He’s not swayed by fancy clothes or cars or decor. I think it’s so important to remember that when God created us, we were totally and completely naked. We didn’t have a single possession to our names. And He said that we were “very good”, exactly as we were.


Do you ever find yourself trying to buy love, acceptance, or value? What is it that you find yourself looking for that you realize you can’t buy?


For a clear understanding of your worth and identity in Jesus.

Tips & Tools

You can use pre-packaged lime juice if you’d like, but I prefer the taste from a fresh-squeezed lime with this recipe! If you opt for fresh-squeezed, a lime squeezer makes it super easy!
