To the Christian Rich - What Do You Do With What You Do Not Need?

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, 
where moth and rust destroy, 
and where thieves break in and steal. 
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, 
where neither moth nor rust destroys, 
and where thieves do not break in or steal; for where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
Matthew 6:19-21

God's Paper Presence

God the Holy Spirit wrote a book. God is for the written word. He is for learning. He is for the good change right knowledge may produce. He is anti-ignorance, especially ignorance of Him.

While I am not against digital books, I am for paper books, partly because of what I think is a superior presence. I think it's better to have a Bible, for example, lying on the living room table than to have a copy saved on your Kindle or phone where it is essentially invisible. Your children don't see it, or handle it, or flip through its pages or draw on the blank filler pages. And you are not reminded by seeing it to fear God, Who like His book, is in the room. But perhaps that's just me.

My friend Adam has an online publishing house. I am commending it to you for some of the accessible, affordable, and helpful resources you can find there; and because since Adam is my friend, I want to see his business flourish. So please consider a visit here.

To the Christian Rich - Guard His Glory or Guard Your Money

No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.
Matthew 6:24

To the Christian Rich - Jesus Marginalizes the Wealthy

And I say to you, it is easier for a camel 
to go through the eye of a needle, 
than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.
Matthew 19:24
