The 411 on Wealth & Poverty

If we meditate on the poverty of Jesus Christ in His humble birth and death, we can start to see how ridiculous our wealth is here on earth. Most of us in America today crave after wealth and try to build it up as if we can take the stuff with us. We build wealth through our work, at home and even make our cars into some sort of idols. We compare our wealth to others. We compare our house and yard to our neighbors and either feel pride or despair. We are always trying to “keep up with the Joneses.” This is a silly game because everything we own will be rubbish one day. All of your toys, clothes, cars, video games, and movies will be destroyed. Nothing we have will last. So we work on building magnificent wealth, so we can sit on it and be worshipped for our success when in actuality our wealth is an absolute joke compared to the wealth of Jesus Christ who is seated at the right hand of the Father in heaven. No matter what I build or accomplish, it will all be rubble one day and even while it shines, it is nothing compared to Jesus Christ seated on his throne in glory.
