Wealth is worthless in the day of wrath, but righteousness delivers from death. —Proverbs 11:4

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

When is your focus? Is it on attaining the wealth and stuff of this world or is it on living right before God and doing His will? Death will come knocking on each of our doors. Many times it comes when we least expect it and at other times it is known creeping toward the door of our life. Either way, it is coming unless we are that generation that will be living when Jesus comes. What a joy that would be!

Today, be focused on His will and honor His Holy Name. Be sensitive to the people we come into contact with and share the good news with them. May it be so, Father, in the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.
