Jonah 2:8

Jonah 2:8
"Those who regard vain idols forsake their faithfulness."

We take nothing with us when we leave.  Material things seem fulfilling temporarily.  It's easy to get sucked in to what society wants us to value.  Do you have the newest car?  Do you have granite countertops and stainless steel?  How big is your TV?  I have seen people try to outdo each other and it's not pretty.  What if we tried to outdo each other spiritually?  What if we tried to help the most people, donate the most time or money to those in need, prayed the most for fellow sinners?  I can't help but wonder what this world would be like if we were trying to outdo each other in kindness, forgetting about our material things that in no way contribute to our status in life.  Things are not going to get us into heaven, our faith, actions, and love for others, will.

Thanks for reading!
