“A Life Worth Living”?

A few days ago I caught the last part of an ad on TV:

“…tasting exquisite foods, driving fancy cars–


What a worldview!  Where are God, others, and eternity?  And does my life bear out what I claim as my values?

     A rich man had a fertile farm that produced fine crops. He said to himself, ‘What should I do? I don’t have room for all my crops.’ Then he said, ‘I know! I’ll tear down my barns and build bigger ones. Then I’ll have room enough to store all my wheat and other goods. And I’ll sit back and say to myself, “My friend, you have enough stored away for years to come. Now take it easy! Eat, drink, and be merry!” ’
      But God said to him, ‘You fool! You will die this very night. Then who will get everything you worked for?’
     Yes, a person is a fool to store up earthly wealth but not have a rich relationship with God.  (Luke 12:13-21 NLT)

Maranatha!  Come, Lord Jesus!
