Big Barns

He who dies with the most toys, wins!
Have you ever heard that saying? What it is meaning is, he who is the richest, or has the most stuff.
But friends, a large bank account won't buy you a ticket through Heaven's Gate. And God doesn't care about all the "stuff" that we place as important.
Remember the poor, old woman that put her last two "mites" into the offering? Was she not considered "rich" by Jesus? She knew what truly was important.
I pray that as I work my way through this life, paycheck to paycheck, like most people, that I don't get too hung up on material things. Because today could be the day I see God face to face. I do not want Him to look at me and say, "you fool" like He did this man. I want to hear, "Well done, faithful servant, Enter in."

And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God. (Luke 12:19-21 KJV)
