Be Free

Our attachments block us from true life.

Psalm 49:17-18  

Do not fear when a man becomes rich, when the wealth of his house grows great. For when he dies, he will take none of it.

When we have lots of possessions and material wealth…there are a lot of things to become attached to.

Money can do lots of good…but for that to happen it has to be spent.

This takes a spiritually advanced person.

If a person’s ego is in control…that person will never be satisfied.

The ego will want more and more.

This is why Jesus said, “It is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for one who is rich to enter the kingdom of God” (Matthew 19:24).

The money isn’t the issue in and of itself…it’s the attachment to it.

When you are attached to anything…it’ll be your main priority.

You won’t know who you are without it.

Due to your inward focus, you won’t even notice those in need around you.

When you are reaching out in compassion to others and being a vessel of God’s love…the kingdom of God is at hand.

This is your main priority!

It’s the path to true life and freedom.

How sad for those who never get beyond the attachment to wealth!

For when life’s final breath is taken…all that wealth will be left behind.

But the love you have experienced and shared…has eternal worth.
