I will always say and stand by it, and I quote: “the foolishness of God is ten thousand better than the wisdom of men”. It seems a lot of people nowadays embraced and cherished material things that come to nothing more than the word and the things of God. They have enough time for themselves, less time for God and the things of God.
People and I will point Christians, who claims to be followers of Christ Jesus are seen to be too busy for themselves minus God who created them. They give much attention when it comes to politics, entertainments and issues of no development. Jesus said something in Matthew 12:30 that “He who is not with Me is against Me, and he who does not gather with Me scatters abroad”. Now my question is: Are you with Him? Just evaluate yourself and tell the truth. All our agenda’s are on money, business, living a better life and so on. But Jesus said “He that gathers without me scatters abroad”. It means no matter how hard you think you are making, it will amount to nothing if Jesus is not in your container.
People don’t give much attention when it comes to the word and the things of God. I once sat in a certain church, and while preaching was going on, I saw some people busy with their mobile phone not even reading the bible app on it, but there were too busy on Facebook and whatsapp. Are these practices good as a Christian who wants to follow and live a Christ life? How can your spirit be very sensitive when God even speak to you? We need to be very serious in our lives as Christian and accept that foolishness of God that we think its not necessary.
Consider God in everything you are doing and certainly know that none of us lives for himself. For if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. Roman 14:8. Let us give much attention to the things of God in every aspect of our life. Be it of Church service, listening to the word and the works of God.
Consider one thing, that you are not going to remain on this earth forever, the bible says it is appointed for a man to die once and after his death, there is judgment. And the things you considered not of no important when you were alive will become very useful in the sight of creator. And how will your judgments be?
Beloved, embrace every bit of the things that concern God and His word, because when you take God business to be your concern, He will also take your business to be His concern.
