Where Do You Put Your Time and Energy?

Proverbs 27:24: “For riches do not endure forever, and a crown is not secure for all generations.”

What plans do you have for your life? What do you value most?

I talked with a friend about family, spiritual, physical, and financial plans for 2014. We shared many of the same ones and prayed God would help us reach them.

On another occasion, I discussed goals with a young man. He told me he wanted to be a millionaire. He said he worked day and night to make money.

I asked that young man if I could pray for him. He smiled and said, “Only if you pray I will become a millionaire.”

When I prayed, I asked God to let him become a millionaire in all areas of his life with family, friends, physical and spiritual health, and financial security.

Proverbs 27:24 came to mind. “Riches do not endure forever.” We can’t take them with us when we die. A couple of people told me they plan to take traveler’s checks with them when they die.

What if that were possible? We won’t need traveler’s checks in heaven, and the fire of hell would burn them.

A person may have a crown or some other item to give to the next generation. However, he may change his mind, or an unexpected misfortune may prevent it.

Dear God, help me appreciate the riches I have in you. Amen.
