Thought for the Lord’s Day

Are you invested in God?


Jesus said where your treasure is there your heart will be also.  If God is your treasure your worship will be rich. Christ warned the man who was first concerned about acquiring possessions. He said life does not consist in the abundance of possessions. Too often, our worship is tainted with the desire for more stuff or for things that we do not have.  


The truth is that no one can ever have enough stuff to be secure. Only in God is there security. The man in Luke 12 thought he had acquired security. The is why he was called a fool.  The search for security on earth will keep you from the worship of God.


The question is simple. The answer will change your worship and your life.


Are you invested in God?


“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.”

Luke 12:20-21
