The Power and the Source of LoveJanuary 19, 2018
Many people use humans rather than doing whatever they can do to connect humans with God, instead of turning the other cheek. There is no offense against man that is worse than using people—it is a grave form of mocking the Creator of humans made in His image.
Now listen, you rich people, weep and wail because of the misery that is coming upon you. Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days. Look! The wages you failed to pay the workmen who mowed your fields are crying out against you. The cries of the harvesters have reached the ears of the Lord Almighty. You have lived on earth in luxury and self-indulgence. You have fattened yourselves in the day of slaughter. James 5:1-5
Also, look at Proverbs 14:31, “He who oppresses the poor shows contempt for their Maker, but whoever is kind to the needy honors God.”
How incredibly lucky we are that the Creator of the world is not a tyrant who delights in wickedness, but rather a God of Love.
Things and money will wind up controlling you, and what good will it do you as you hoard your money on that last day? Why can we not just believe that if we give to God and His people first then everything else will be added unto us? It is when we uphold the symbolism of the cross and keep it ever before us that we see the answer to life thru the cross: a life of sacrifice of our comforts, our time, our money and our possessions. Jesus taught us not to store up our treasures on Earth, for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew (6:19-21)
