But it’s vivid what people value. It’s strange they’re Christians though. Tell them how you got a job, made money, overcame a financial calamity, got As, finished a PHD or any material/fleshly gain and they’ll join you in thanksgiving, whining AMENs and say how it’s God’s grace and how God never leaves His children.
Now that’s good. But tell them how God is winning souls, how He’s forgiven you, how you overcame temptation, or, that your loved ones now know Christ and, well, the attitude is business-as-usual. Where do our treasures lie? Really, where? Funny, it’s the opposite in Heaven. What happens when one soul is won over? Aha!
