I was struck with a thought the other day. I had just read about a German businessman who committed suicide because he was suffering severe losses to his fortune due to the current economy. It got me to thinking a little more about where I have my treasures stored. Houses, money, possessions in general… all these things are wonderful blessings while we are here on earth… but that’s as far as it goes. A relationship with God on the other hand… that is a blessing here on earth and beyond… for all eternity! What did the German businessman see as his treasures…? So, I’ve been taking a little closer look at all my ‘things’… including my health and family… and trying to put it all into perspective.
1 Timothy 6:17 Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy.
