From Gary.... Someday

Nice idea, poor execution. Obvious to even the casual observer, but then again, its easy to find fault with what others do, isn't it?  I wonder, what about your plan- I mean your plan for LIFE? Sure, you may have an IRA or some such vehicle for your money, but is money all there is to life? Isn't there more to life than possessions???  Jesus says...

Luke, Chapter 12 (NASB)
Luk 12:15  Then He said to them, "Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions."
Luk 12:16  And He told them a parable, saying, "The land of a rich man was very productive.
Luk 12:17  "And he began reasoning to himself, saying, 'What shall I do, since I have no place to store my crops?'
Luk 12:18  "Then he said, 'This is what I will do: I will tear down my barns and build larger ones, and there I will store all my grain and my goods.
Luk 12:19  'And I will say to my soul, "Soul, you have many goods laid up for many years to come; take your ease, eat, drink and be merry."'
Luk 12:20  "But God said to him, 'You fool! This very night your soul is required of you; and now who will own what you have prepared?'
Luk 12:21  "So is the man who stores up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God."
Luk 12:22  And He said to His disciples, "For this reason I say to you, do not worry about your life, as to what you will eat; nor for your body, as to what you will put on.
Luk 12:23  "For life is more than food, and the body more than clothing.
Luk 12:24  "Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap; they have no storeroom nor barn, and yet God feeds them; how much more valuable you are than the birds!
Luk 12:25  "And which of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life's span?
Luk 12:26  "If then you cannot do even a very little thing, why do you worry about other matters?
Luk 12:27  "Consider the lilies, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; but I tell you, not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these.
Luk 12:28  "But if God so clothes the grass in the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, how much more will He clothe you? You men of little faith!
Luk 12:29  "And do not seek what you will eat and what you will drink, and do not keep worrying.
Luk 12:30  "For all these things the nations of the world eagerly seek; but your Father knows that you need these things.
Luk 12:31  "But seek His kingdom, and these things will be added to you.

We plan for our future, why not for our eternal future? I am here to tell you that no matter how much money you have, it will never be enough!!!  On this lazy Sunday afternoon, take a few moments to think about your heavenly retirement plan; if you haven't got one, get one. And don't forget to include Jesus- you will be glad you did-- someday!!!
