Topic: Pigs Might Fly (10/31/13)

TITLE: A Millionaires Dream

I popped my head into the office. "Nancy, I have some checks for you to process."

"Okay, thank you." Nancy grabbed the bundle. "How are you doing?" She placed the checks on the scanner.

"I am fine. What's new?"

Nancy smiled. "My son Ben said that I have to be nice to you."

I had a puzzled look on my face. "Why?"

Nancy started to laugh. "He had a dream last night that you're going to be a millionaire."

I started to giggle. "I don't think so, I'll be lucky if I don't end up in a homeless shelter. Your son is the one who is going to be a millionaire. After all, he pitched a no hitter in the state tournament. Ben will probably end up as a major league baseball player someday."

That was a real conversation I had with Nancy. When I get my paycheck every month, and see how poor I am, I think about how nice it would be to become a millionaire. The only thing is when people get a lot of money, they forget about the Lord.

Believers who are poor should take pride that God has made them spiritually rich. Those who are rich should take pride that God has shown them that they are spiritually poor. The rich will die like a wild flower in the grass. The sun rises with burning heat and dries up the plants. The flower falls off, and its beauty is gone. In the same way the rich will die while they are still taking care of business. James 1: 9-11 (NCV)

The world is heading in the wrong direction. There is going to come a day when those riches will not mean a thing. I would rather be spiritually rich and have Jesus versus a lot of junk that will end up in the ash heap of history.

What is important is that you have Jesus in your heart and that you proclaim the Gospel to the rich and the poor.

Dear Lord, help me to remember that riches and the things of this world are going to melt away some day. The only thing that will make me happy is a relationship with you. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Beautifully done with a prolific message that will resonate within the hearts of readers.

I especiallyloved this: I would rather be spiritually rich and have Jesus versus a lot of junk that will end up in the ash heap of history.

Excellent job.

God bless~

Nicely written. To the point.

The USA is a hard country to live in and remain unaffected by money. The love of money is under the surface of all advertisement. (You deserve it. You owe it to yourself. ....)

Continue your fight against this deception.

"If you live me, keep my commandments.) We need to be searching his word to make sure we are not being deceived.
