Is our main priority to get richer than we are? Could our goal be to get ahead of our neighbor? Would this desire be more important than being with our family for the evening meal or spend playtime with our children?
A predecessor to John Wesley, Thomas A Kempis states that art, riches, beauty, strength and eloquence are less than zero in God’s opinion.
Jesus thought that we ought to invest time in problem solving to stay true to our first spouse. This should come first even before pleasure and enjoying ourselves. Any obsession or goal that breaks our devotion to God is called an idol. Letting that happen can cause us to miss heaven.
So today would be a good time to decide what is really important to devote our life to.
