My sweet wife loves to shop. She will shop until she drops. It is all in an effort to collect things. I don’t really like to shop, but I like to be with my wife. In my own way, I shop for things. I love gadgets. I will go into a hardware store to browse. Also, I like to go to nurseries to look for new plants. So, I collect things as well. I don’t know anyone who doesn’t. Everyone has a hobby. You have heard the old saying, the different between men and boys are the price of their toys. Things make the world go round. It only seems that the more you collect the more you are worth in this world. Unfortunately, people look at the things of God the same way. God has power. So much that He can change anything on this earth, in the blink of an eye. People see that power can bring prosperity and man wants to be in control. The only thing about that is that God doesn’t share His power with anyone. You can ask God to do something for you and He will. The power of God is activated by faith, not force. Outside of delivering you out of the pits of hell, all other request have to be made in His presence. God uses the privilege of prayer for His children to fellowship with Him. All the things of God aren’t made to increase your wealth or power. The things of God are tools that God gives to us to further the kingdom of God. The greatest man of God is no more important than the lowliest servant, who opens and closes the doors at church. For God is no respecter of persons. We are all the same in the kingdom of God, children, heirs to the kingdom. Praise His Holy Name.
