"A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than silver and gold." Prov 22:1
This bit of wisdom is counter to the conspicuous consumption norms we see in society today. We judge and are judged by the type of cars we drive, the watches we wear and the addresses we maintain. But to what end?
Beloved, the Christian's main priority is to be in possession of the grace and mercy of God. Should we feel the need to be judged by man, let it be that we are blameless, children of the Almighty, disciples of Christ and lovers of all mankind. If there is anything we boast, let it be the love of the Lord.
It has been said that one never sees a U-Haul following a hearse. Likewise, it is not the things that we accumulate in this life that will follow us into eternity, but our manner of living that will determine our eternity.
Loving Like Jesus,
