What are we to remember in particular?

Share |

In particular we are to remember that accumulating possessions is not the substance or goal of a Christian’s life. A Christian’s goal is the bliss of heaven. We use our possessions in the right way, when we use them to serve the members of our family and our neighbors, particularly the needy, and to support the work of God’s kingdom.

Luke 12:15: Take heed, and beware of covetousness; for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth.

1 Tim. 6:17,18: Charge them that are rich in this world, that they be not high-minded, nor trust in uncertain riches, but in the living God, Who giveth us richly all things to enjoy; that they be rich in good works, ready to distribute, willing to communicate.

Gal. 2:10: We should remember the poor.

2 Cor. 9:7: Every man according as he purposeth in his heart, so let him give; not grudgingly, or of necessity; for God loveth a cheerful giver.
