Every year, we read of lists of people that are “the richest people on earth”. These individuals are recognized for their wealth, possessions, and status in society. I guess if we do not make that list, we are considered “poor”. Did you know that in God’s eyes, He sees people as the exact opposite?
In Revelation 18:14 we read, “14 The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all.”
Jesus constantly reminds us that it is not material possessions that will make us rich. Some would argue that material possessions could actually make us poor. Jesus tells us that we are rich in Him and only Him. Yes, those material possessions are nice, but they are temporary. In fact, Jesus tells us “you shall find them no more at all”. The only true possession is Jesus and He and only He will make us rich. Rich in His grace, mercy and peace. We can’t take our material possessions with us when we die, the we can take Jesus!
I pray for blessings today for you on your Journey!
