What Do You Stand For?
“Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” (Matthew 6:21)
The question often is asked, “What do Christians stand for?” The answer the world would give is, “Not much other than what we do.”
The sad part about it is that most people really want to know a personal God, but because of their desires they make gods out of material possessions and worship them instead. Time, energy, and money all are spent on the wrong things.
We have the only hope to offer a generation that is without hope, and yet we’re spending the majority of our time pursuing vain things.
Our energies are so depleted in accumulating bigger homes, businesses, cars, computers, and retirement plans that we don’t have much time to see that our priorities are out of order.
We can stand for accumulating things, or we can stand for building the kingdom of God.
