I Want!

I want this house!

We are good at wanting. Our culture is driven by it. Social media lays them out like a buffet for us. Corporations figured out how to weaponize our wants and make billions.

But is there another life to come? Will all things be made new? Did Jesus go to prepare a place for us? And is He calling us, saying “take up your cross and follow me”? He is.

It’s not bad to have nice things. God doesn’t mind what you own. But He does mind what owns you. He sees our hearts. And I want a heart that’s wholly His!

A heart that doesn’t take pride in how much I have or how little I have. A heart that worships Him.

So is it bad to want things? Of course not. But I think there’s a better question to be asking… Am I worshipping my wants? “Sell your possessions, and give to the needy. Provide yourselves with moneybags that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” – Luke 12:15
