Just a little bit more… to have my best life now?

Wow, if anyone can paint a picture of just how great it would be to be rich… James can, and does.  Makes me want to go out and buy a lottery ticket or start building another barn to store my stuff in. We don’t have to ask ‘are we living in the last days?’  The Bible has already said we are.  So, people get ready Jesus is coming soon…

Come now, you rich, weep and howl for the miseries that are coming upon you. Your riches have rotted and your garments are moth-eaten. Your gold and silver have corroded, and their corrosion will be evidence against you and will eat your flesh like fire. You have laid up treasure in the last days.
(James 5:1-3 ESV)

    I appreciate your scripture reference there Tim. Makes a guy think about what’s important, and what isn’t. My flesh wars.

    Glad to be fighting this right alongside you brother. Daily I am tempted to want what the world offers at the cost of faithful obedience to Jesus Christ. James paints worldliness pretty graphically here, doesn’t he?
