Another scorcher

The hot sun rises and the grass withers; the little flower droops and falls, and its beauty fades away. In the same way, the rich will fade away with all of their achievements. James 1:11

Fear of loss gives us permission to become misers. Worry about building and securing wealth scorches our spirits and shrinks our influence for God’s kingdom. We gain that which holds eternal consequence by letting go of the things that are going to wither anyway.

Lord, any riches or fame that comes my way is Yours anyway; use it for eternal purposes.
