Let the blessings in your life be a reminder of all the goodness in you. That there be a Holy Fear for it all to be taken away from you by the Higher Power who has given them to you in the first place.
It is not bad to acquire things of this life, but it’s they way of having them that matters and of the change in you when you have them. Will it be your world, the material world, or just be an incentive to living your life the right way? Let your earthly possessions not blind you from taking the right path, and instead be an inspiration to continue doing what is right for more of these blessings to share to others.
LIFE IS SO SHORT and so people love to say “enjoy it while it last”. Yes, there is no harm doing so if nothing or no one gets hurt with it. Thus, seeing people have the riches they deserve and still are the one closest to God makes me proud of them. They serve as motivation to others. And their flaunting it to others is even encouraging; to poke others into being like them.
I see them wearing immaculate clothes, driving beautiful cars with chrome trim and living in big houses…and still spends quality time serving and pleasing the Lord. They deserve it. Do we?
