“And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. 14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? 15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.” Luke 12:12-15
Many people today are at odds with each other over things that will not matter when death comes knocking on their door. I like the old joke about a man meeting Peter at heaven’s gate carrying a huge suit case of gold. Peter had him open the suitcase and laughed at the contents. He then asked why in the world was a suitcase of road pavement so important? “The Bible speaks of streets of purest gold. Earthly treasures are not as important when you look at them in perspective. Let’s walk in divine precepts now. Treasure what is important. Treasure your family and friends. This is a new year and many are dieting. How about giving up things like resentment, guilt, unforgiveness and all the things that are spiritual weights this year? I promise you will feel better and look better.
