God vs Money
The law shows how holy and righteous God is, and how imperfect, unrighteous, and dependent on him we really are. The story of the rich ruler shows us what it’s like to have something other than God as central to our life.
Though we may desire to be part of God’s kingdom, many times we are still attached to the gods of this age. Materialism is about looking what we have and seeing it as more valuable than God, even if we would never say it like that. Materialism makes a terrible god because it is fragile and fleeting. Christianity is not about being healthy, wealthy, and blessed. We are called to be generous with what we’ve been giving, and to be held accountable for the use of our blessings. May we be good stewards of what we’ve been given.
