“Then he said to them, ‘Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions.’ And he told them this parable: ‘The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. And I’ll say to myself, ‘You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.’ ‘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 12:15-21

I can remember hearing about a wealthy man when he died. Someone asked, “How much did he leave when he passed away?” Another person answered, “Everything!” It doesn’t matter how much we have accumulated during our lifetime, we all have the same amount of material possessions we leave behind, which is all we have.

Before God created anything, He had a plan. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit were, are and always will be in perfect unity and that is God’s will for all of us. That is why He wants our lives to come into agreement with Him. When we begin our walk with the Lord we are conditioned to living our lives man’s way instead of God’s way. We spend our whole life transitioning from the kingdom of darkness to become mature sons and daughters in the Kingdom of Light.

The phrase, “Let go and let God” is an expression that describes letting go of the ways of the world and letting God have His way in our hearts and minds. The more we do that we are able to walk in peace and harmony with Him. Let’s become rich towards God.
