It Can So Easily Be Taken
Yesterday I witnessed a take away. The neighbors next door to my son had apparently abandoned their house and their vehicle. I assume the economy had hit them like many others. I can view the back yard from the window. I see traces of what seemed to be a happy childrens play area, filled with toy trucks,slides,and small riding toys. But I also saw signs of negligence. Weeds growing through the astro turf. The grim reaper of vehicles came in the evening, just before sunset, to repossess the truck in the drive way. This is sad. To witness lives interrupted so. We have to stop living life for stuff. We need to focus on the foundations that God wants us to. I understand that working hard deserves comfort. There is no doubt about that. We over emphasis material things. They can be taken so easily. Matthew 10:41 says, he who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophets reward and he who receives a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward. Do not get caught up in the material things of the world. Give from your heart and you shall be richly rewarded by God.
