Who’s Rich?

9 Jun

Did you ever wish to be rich? If so, it likely gave you an image of having all bills paid and all material desires met and a pile of money yet at your disposal. I am not sure I know very many folks like that and I am not sure that money answers all ills and brings the rewards imagined. But for some reason we like to dream of extra cash.

Proverbs 23:5 says, “Cast but a glance at riches, and they are gone, for they will surely sprout wings and fly off to the sky like an eagle.”

I chuckle to think that sometimes that seems to happen between pay checks–that money takes flight.

God would have us believe that our treasures are not to be earthly, but rather they should be Heavenly. The book of Matthew teaches that earthly treasures might rust, or get lost or stolen, but that Heavenly treasures are safe, secure and full of goodness.

What is a Heavenly treasure? Anything that allows devotion and clear thinking where God is concerned is a Heavenly treasure.

Philippians 4:8 KJV – Finally, brethren, whatsoever things …… whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these …

Imagine dreaming of the Lord instead of what bills must be paid. Imagine thinking prayerful thoughts over financial woes. God’s promises are true and those promises are for our welfare and well being.

The Book of Mathew truly depicts this.

Chapter 6:25-34. It is the reading about how God cares for the lilies of the field and are we not more than they?

Who’s rich?

Those who seek the Lord’s goodness, God’s will and his holy treasures in Heaven—those are the ones who are rich!

Do you know anyone who’s rich?
