God has blessed us with His Word. Through His Word, God has given us hope for a resurrection to life, reigning with Him in eternity. This world’s riches will wither away, but God’s riches in heaven will never wither away. We will inherit all things through Christ Jesus.
“Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
We are dust and to dust we shall return. None of what we gain in this world can we take to the grave. Therefore, why strive for perishable items as the rich do, when the imperishable is what we ought to desire? God has provided a way of escape through His Son Jesus.
No manner of riches will save us from death. Likewise, wealth will not save the rich from the grave. Gaining the whole world will not spare us from God’s judgment. Yet, our salvation rests in God, who will raise us from the dead and reward us with everlasting life.
What manner of person shall we be, knowing that all things in this world will perish? We ought to love God and love others as we would ourselves. True wealth comes from things unseen. Be kind always. Be patient always. Strive for eternal riches.

How sad and so true how some gather all this life has to offer as though this is all there is! Eternity is worth striving for, more than this temporary world so many live for.
Be not thou afraid when one is made rich, when the glory of his house is increased; For when he dieth he shall carry nothing away: his glory shall not descend after him. Though while he lived he blessed his soul: and men will praise thee, when thou doest well to thyself. He shall go to the generation of his fathers; they shall never see light. Man that is in honour, and understandeth not, is like the beasts that perish. (Psalm 49:16-20). God bless You Jack.
