” What will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul”
” The Bible says, is not with money itself, but with our love of money”, ” The love of money is a root of all kinds of Evil”
1 Timothy 6:10
We of this society have become so consumed with money and of material things, that we have lost total sight of were we are truly going along this journey of life. Through our need of money, it has turned us into someone that, not even we ourselves know truly of who we are and even as we look into any mirror. The greed of everything around us, has us look at everything with the eyes of, how much does that cost? The real true beauty around has no price and is priceless when we view them from the right angle, most of the time if something has no price and cost us nothing, then because of our need of money, we then look at that item as worthless and not worth it? Then we move past that item and forget about whatever it is.
When Jesus came to us and walked his path of this journey, he did so with the clothes on his back, and looked like what we see in any city, a homeless man. Today when we see anyone living out in the streets, we look away as if they have some kind of crazy and very infectious disease? Now true some may have made that choice to live that way, but most did not, as they were forced onto the streets, not just of bad times, but for reasons that greed had taken everything from them. Because of greed, we essentially have put a price on all our lives as we walk our paths through this journey of life.
Look at the Leaders of some of the other countries today, with them it is all about, power, control and greed. They value more of what can you do for me, instead of what can I do for you, greed is the root of everything Evil and if you follow the money, then you as well will be led to a path of destruction sooner or later. I get the fact we all want to be comfortable, but really just how comfortable can you be, when there is a hefty price tag, on everything you do, say, or even buy. Greed has become so powerful to all of us, gone are the days of a simple thing like Bartering, now most in this society have no clue what Bartering is because of greed, it is quite simple, when you exchange something with another for a service, with no monies exchanging hands, well then you have done the simple act of bartering, not too mention the fact that, now you have done something even greater like, you have now created a trust and a bond with another, that can and will last a lifetime.
We have fallen so deep within the bubble of greed, that now we will purchase all the material things, just so we will look more powerful than those around us, we will purchase land to build a home on, without thinking of the lives that will get disrupted, when the land gets cleared? But what we never think of when we purchase that land is, all the wildlife in that area now has to relocate. Through greed all of our judgments are thickly settled with clouds, as now we can not think clearly anymore, Plus through greed, we now only think of ourselves, with zero empathy or remorse for anything, or anyone that may be around us.
When you add in the technology like we have today, to the equation of greed, now everything has multiplied even greater, don’t get me wrong, technology can and will help us, but in a lot of ways it has hurt us to the point that, we have taken huge steps backwards instead of moving forward. For instance all th social media platforms today, when they were created they were very good and actually kept us communicating with those a far, but!!! Now we the people have turned even these platforms into our worst nightmares, and you think the creator’s of these platforms really care? They have not lost a nights sleep over it, even more, they are laughing all the way to the bank, over all our anger issues and attacks we make on their platforms.
This society is in need of a major fix, we the people have put ourselves into this, we the people need to wake up to reality, and pull ourselves out of the huge hole we dug, from the appetite of trying to achieve all the power, control and greed of each other. Jesus showed us how to walk our paths of this journey, so we can get to that path of righteousness, but with our actions within this society, is this really the way we thank him? Jesus is within all our souls and his blood warms our hearts as it flows freely throughout our bodies, but when we do not acknowledge him, then our hearts and souls become so cold, we lose all empathy for everything and everyone around us, which then lets all the greed take ahold of us and control every fiber of our being. It is never to late to fix this, Jesus will always be there for us, but only when we truly feel his love within us, truly have complete faith in him, so we than can move forward with hope, so that we can fix what is wrong, then get back to walking our paths in peace, and move forward on this journey with the joy for everything around us.
” The darkness will only last as long as we let it, then the true light will brighten our paths of this journey”
” The trees will lose their leaves in the fall and may look bare, then in the spring new life prevails with fresh leaves on all the trees”
” God created all this beauty for us all to come together, not to separate and destroy everything around us”
