October 03 of Arise with Christ

Eternity is a long time

Measure all things in life with the yardstick of God's Truth and not by what is profitable to you personally.
This is why rich men rarely (if ever) get into God's Kingdom because they measure things by financial gain and not by spiritual gain.
They consider the things of the Spirit worthless and worship instead at the altar of the almighty bottom line of net profit.
They forget that the economy exists for the benefit of all the people rather then the people existing for the benefit of the economy.
What does it profit a man if he gains the world and loses his soul and suffers for all eternity in the lake of fire.?
Lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven that you may be spiritually rich for all eternity.
Brethren, eternity is a long time.
