This is only for people who believe the Bible to be God's word.
Materialism is the top priority in the lives of many. People will strive and sacrifice important things like God, family, and others for material gain. These type of people are never satisfied—all they are concerned about is how to get more "stuff," which includes houses, cars, clothes, jewelry, food, cash, etc. Jesus warned of being too concerned about the things of this life in the story of the rich fool. This man was very materialistic and had no time for the Lord. He died before he could enjoy all he had stored away (Luke 12:13–34). Nothing is guaranteed—our life can be gone in a minute, and we cannot take our "stuff" with us (1 Timothy 6:6–12; Job 1:21; James 4:13–17).
For that reason we must not be foolish enough to forget the Lord. Now don't get me wrong, I like nice things as well as the next man, however I draw the line when it comes to sacrificing God, family, and others. Greedy Judas betrayed our Lord for 30 lousy pieces of silver and then lost his soul (John 12:4–8; Matthew 26:14–16; Mark 8:36–37; Acts 1:15–21). Don't put a million dollars, or any other material thing before God, because it is by His hand that people are able to have what they have (Deuteronomy 28:1–68; James 24:15; Matt. 6:19–34; 2 Kings 3:10–14; Job 42:12–17; Malachi 3:8–10; Colossians 3:1–3; Matt. 5:45; John 3:27).
Hope to hear from you or see you at the services.
