Thought of the Day: For Those Who Think They Have It All (Revelations 3:17)

IF you look at the news lately many people are concerned with protecting what they have. I speak mainly of the rich. They argue with the policies of a President that we the people elected. They want greater tax breaks and less help for those in need. They feel as though they have made it and they want to keep it by hook or crook. Even if that means the death and destruction of many of us.
However on many levels they can be the poorest of the poor. They lack the richness that love and compassion bring, they have missed the mark on how the Bible instructs us to treat the least of these. When you get to a point that you stop caring about those who you either left behind or started out ahead of, you start to deplete the funds of your moral, spiritual, Christ-like account.
Revelation 3:17 states:
New International Version (NIV)
17 You say, ‘I am rich; I have acquired wealth and do not need a thing.’ But you do not realize that you are wretched, pitiful, poor, blind and naked.
If you find yourself in a position where you are wealthy beyond what you can spend, hood rich so you can buy the things that you want, or so comfortable that you don’t have to live check to check. The next time you go to the internet to check your bank accounts or read your statement. The next time you go and check and see what the stock market is doing to make sure that your investments are still protected. Don’t let out that sigh of relief until you have spent a little quiet time with the Lord and ask Him what your balance is in His account. What you have here on earth is temporary, your final transaction with Him will be permanent.
Be Blessed,
