Success and riches can make a fool out of us. Jesus described the rich man–who laid up treasures for himself only to die and leave it all behind for someone else—as “a fool.” (Luke 12:20-21) Physical blessings are useful and may be enjoyed, however, if they are our ultimate goal, then they are making a fool out of us! The riches and rewards of this world will NEVER fulfill us. At the end of his life, Solomon–the guy who had it all–said this: “All is vanity. What does man gain by all the toil at which he toils under the sun? All things are full of weariness; a man cannot utter it; the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing.” (Eccl. 1:2-3) If we want TRUE fulfillment, we must seek what God designed to fulfill us—not what leaves us hungry for more! The Bible says: ”Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth.” (Col. 3:2) When we belong to Christ, nothing in this world gives us complete satisfaction and we shouldn’t be deceived into settling! A quick way to assess whether we are living wisely is to analyze how we spent our time yesterday. If most of our time and money was spent seeking the physical blessings of this world, then we have settled—and– at the end of the day, it will never be enough. The fact is–possessions and position are not a source of ultimate satisfaction unless they are used for God’s glory. The physical blessings of God will produce a double blessing for us when we enjoy them WHILE we use them for His Glory. When we invest the blessings of earth into the hearts of people, we reap the blessings of heaven. The decision to put our life in the pursuit of God’s blessings is made daily—in our homes, jobs, communities and beyond. Jesus said our treasure is where our heart is and when we live for His glory, we have the opportunity to possess ETERNAL treasures. Don’t be a fool and settle for less than God’s best. Living for His glory is the wisest investment we’ll ever make!
