Woe Woe Woe Woe

GUWG-Cross-CloudWe continue our 40-day journey deeeeep into the ♥ of Jesus.

We’re sitting at Jesus’ feet, listening to the greatest sermon ever preached: the Sermon on the Mount.

For the past several days, we’ve been taking a deeeeep dive into the Beatitudes and what it reeeeeally means to be “blessed.”

Just in case we missed the point somehow, Jesus concluded with a series of woe-full warnings in direct opposition to the world.

The world says: Get rich.

Jesus says:

Jesus on the Rich

richWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

We’re in the midst of a series entitled JESUS ON EVERYTHING, where we’re looking at what Jesus said on a wide variety of subjects with a minimum of commentary from me.

Yesterday’s topic was JESUS ON THE POOR. Today’s topic? JESUS ON THE RICH:

The Rich Fool

A humongous crowd was listening to Jesus. A man shouted, “Teacher, please tell my brother to divide our father’s estate with me.”

Jesus responded with words I should read every .03 seconds:

Wanna Get Rich?

Who doesn’t?

How about people who take God at his word?

Here’s just a smattering of what the Bible says about being rich in this world:

Woe to you who are rich. (Luke 6:24)

How hard it is for the rich to enter the kingdom of God! Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God. (Luke 18:24-25)
