Where Is Your Treasure?

By   •   August 18   •   Topics:

Many young people are building their lives on the rock of materialism. I find across the country a deep economic discontent among people in every walk of life. People want more and more things. They forget that we are enjoying the highest standard of living the world has ever known. We still have poverty, and hundreds of agencies are trying to do something about it; but we are dissatisfied. We want more, more, more. But Jesus said, “You cannot serve God and money.” He said that a man’s life does not consist in the abundance of the things that he possesses. Adolf Berle, in his study of power, points out that riches often make people solitary and lonely and, of course, afraid. Many times a rich man knows loneliness and fear, because when he makes wealth his god, it leaves him empty. You see, without God life loses its zest and purpose and meaning.

Ever prayed and wondered why God won’t let you win the lottery? Read Billy Graham’s answer.

Prayer for the day

Knowing You, my heavenly Father, brings richness to my life and soul.

    I listened to Billy Graham for years with my late mother, and have truly missed hearing him and what he has to say. I look forward with all my heart to hear from him again. God bless you for all that you do and much more! I await anxiously to hear from you!

    I will never be wealthy by worldly standards, however I feel like a multi billionaire by heavenly standards. Gods daily blessings are truly amazing.

    Spiritual growth is better than material growth, after all money doesn’t buy love.
