What does God call us to be? Or in other words, what are we to really want? What’s our destination? “He who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food, will supply and multiply your seed for sowing, and increase the harvest of your righteousness.” 2 Cor. 9:10 ESV Wealth is not the destination and never has been. Becoming like Jesus in his righteousness, is the destination! “And he said to them, 'Take care, and be on your guard against all covetousness, for one’s life does not consist in the abundance of his possessions.'” Luke 12:15 ESV
Recently our pastor Mark Burch shared this with us … "Those of us who make in excess of $50,000 annually, are in the top 1% of the worlds annual income producers." That is a fearsome thought. Why so? Because we know with absolute certainty, that
God who has given us much, will expect much of us.
“Everyone to whom much was given, of him much will be required, and from him to whom they entrusted much, they will demand the more.” Luke 12:48b ESV.
“Great gifts mean great responsibilities; greater gifts, greater responsibilities!” Luke 12:48b MSG.
