God is always looking out for His children. He has shown us the door to redemption through Jesus Christ. But it is up to us whether to enter or to stay in the darkness.
Many of God’s people today are lost, confused and deceived by the call of earthly pleasures and material possessions. They seek their own interests instead of seeking that of Jesus Christ. Most of us live in a society that places too much importance on money and material things. As human beings, there is nothing wrong with providing for oneself and one’s family; but if you turn away from those who are in need, you neglect your Christian duty to your neighbor.
“Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.” – Philippians 2:4
God wants us to love one another, pray for one another, and help one another. It is a simple and easy instruction that most of us find so hard to do. God gives us a chance every day to take up this challenge and make a difference in the lives of others. Having a close relationship with God can help us discern the right thing to do and break free from the temptations that are laid before us.
The Bible tells us not to store up treasures on earth, but to store up treasures in heaven. Let us seek the right treasures and live in the grace of our Father up high. Our obedience to His word will bring us joy and peace.
