Rich toward God.

Series: modgniK | Week 1: More is Less

Luke 12:16-21
And he told them this parable: “The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ “Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. And I’ll say to myself, “You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.”’
“But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded from you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ “This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”
Jesus says we’re fools if we store up for ourselves here on earth but are not rich toward God. If we are greedy without money, we will be greedier with money. If we are generous without money, we’ll be more generous with money. The quickest, most effective way to be free from the grasp of greed is to be generous. It’s also the most effective way for the world to see the marked difference Jesus Christ has made in our lives.
Ask God to protect your heart from greed and selfishness. Pray today for focus in pursuing a rich relationship with Him.
