I don’t believe everything I hear these days. Maybe that’s the wisdom that comes with getting older. I used to believe everything anyone ever said. I was so naive. Really.
My heart is sad today. I went to visit another church and found out the old Worship Leader and band had left. Another Church had offered them more money for their service. Why is our worship for sale?
And then the girl who came to church playing the ‘victim’. Months later to realize she had told the same lie to 3 other Church families. We gave, she took, and when confronted with Truth, she left. Why is our compassion taken advantage of?
And the woman who came looking for money. We gave and she left. There is so much more available here. How about healing? Why not stay for the real Living Water? Jesus can heal those wounds and give you things money could never buy.
And those in the Church who have money, yet treat those who don’t have money as if they have lesser value to God. In Christ we are all the same. We are all equal. We were CREATED EQUAL, by God. Money doesn’t matter. The widow and the fatherless are just as important as the millionaire.
My heart hurts, for all those who see people through dollar signs.
For those who have money and those who don’t.
For those who think money can buy people and then they ‘own’ them. They think they can order people around because their wallet may be fatter that particular day.
People are worth so much more than money.
Now I understand why Jesus tipped over those tables.
The Kingdom of Heaven is not for sale.
The Blood of Jesus cannot ever be bought.
Help us Lord – to value people, not things or money, in Jesus Name
