It seems to be a familiar pattern that when a people, community, or nation begin a rise from relative poor circumstances to increasing material abundance, there is a corresponding decline in religious interest and church attendance. There is a loss among some Christians to maintain a fervor for God and faithful reliance upon his care. Could there be an unresolved question in the mind of many, whether trusting in material wealth is far better than to trust in the faithfulness of God toward his own? Does the desire for material satisfaction become one's preference over spiritual sanctification. The biblical formula is the only trustworthy way, whatever one's situation may be: "Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you"(Matthew 6:35). The Christian does not look to the world for his/her life condition. Beloved, we know that the day we were saved the windows of heaven opened, and from them flowed the fullness of love, grace, mercy, kindness, and care of God. Those windows will never close. Praise god from whom all blessings flow!!
