"If you want to be perfect, go sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me." - Matthew 19 V21

"But what things were gain for me, these I have counted loss for Christ." - Philippians 3 V1

All the material things, though they give us joy and pleasure, one day will perish, and our material riches will not be counted in the kingdom of God. For Jesus said, "where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Matthew 6 V21). God blesses His people with goodness and riches, so the problem is not about being rich, but when the riches take priority in our life, that's when we go astray. Keep your eye upon Jesus, and let us count our earthly gains as loss for the sake of Christ. Let us use our blessings to bless others, for the glory of God! Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
