Take some time out and think of the time and energy you put into building one thing or another and compare it to the amount of time you spend on building your relationship with Christ. How much time do you put into ready your word and praying as opposed to what you spend on selfish personal gains? Luke 12:21 says, “Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.”
It is not a bad thing to have wealth, but it is absolutely worthless to have wealth outside of Christ. You can have all the things in this world and still be poor in every way because you do not have God. What is important is our relationship with God. The richness of that relationship is what holds value and importance. It is that same richness that will keep you grounded and moving because it is very possible to have everything and still be very unstable. Stability first has to do with your heart and your mind before anything else, so you have to make sure your heart is in the right place.
All riches belong to God, so let your focus be on Him instead and everything else will be yours. Be careful not to gain everything at the expense of your relationship with God lest you put yourself in an unpleasant position. If you first have Christ you have everything, but having everything does not constitute having Christ so be careful in your ways. God first and by virtue of his word, everything else will follow.
21 “Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.”
