Imitating Christ - #4

How foolish it is to seek and to put your trust in riches that will pass. How foolish to go after worldly honors and to set yourself above others. How foolish to follow the impulses of the flesh, or to covet those things which so soon will cost you a heavy penalty.

How foolish to wish for a long life, but not care whether it is a good life; to be concerned only with the present, with never a thought of eternity and the endless joy that awaits you.

Children, how hard is it for them that trust in riches to enter into the kingdom of God! Mark 10:24 KJV

This passage is vital, especially for a western society that thrives in 'things'. Psa 37.7 puts it well, 'Wait silently for the salvation of Hashem & wait lovingly for Him; do NOT compete with him who prospers ...'
