I feel concerned about those who chase after an abundance of possessions without first considering the wealth of their soul and the building-up of relationships through love, the things that money cannot buy. Yes, I know we have to work to sustain ourselves physically. Still, if we don’t balance our physical and spiritual lives carefully, we will end up with only possessions and people around us who have little care for us that are only there for what our money can do for them and not because we nurture their souls.
If you haven’t gotten to the point of enriching your spiritual wealth, may I suggest that you have a conversation with God and ask him to help you change your heart? Ask him to enable you to love people the way he does. Praying this one prayer can change your life and the lives of those around you. After all, loving God and loving people is the point of the scriptures. If you conquer these two things, you will have reached the pinnacle of your existence.
And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. Matthew 22:37-39
