Everything of this life and world are things that are not comparable to the ultimate rewards of Heaven; no matter how big or small.
The words of David’s son, Qoheleth, king in Jerusalem: Vanity of vanities, says Qoheleth, vanity of vanities! All things are vanity!Ecclesiastes 1:1-2
Jesus told a person in a crowd about a foolish rich man. The rich man thought he was doing what he needed to do to maintain his status and increase his wealth. God spoke to him.
But God said to him, ‘You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you; and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong?’ Thus will it be for the one who stores up treasure for himself but is not rich in what matters to God.”Luke 12:20-21
How must we change our current priorities so as to not fall to the same predicament as the rich fool? What is preventing us to see past what we hold so dearly in this life? How can I change to better myself and be more willing to share my worldly things?
