Be Rich Towards God

December 10, 2011

Luk 12:13-21

It is folly to devote all our energy to work for to eat and be merry, or even to be blessed to have enough to get to take ease, yet be poor towards God. We must rather strive to be rich towards God to avoid the end of life folly.

Old age is not guaranteed. The time to serve God is now. We don't know when the music will stop.
