“The Pharisees, who dearly loved their money, heard all this and scoffed at him. Then he said to them, “You like to appear righteous in public, but God knows your hearts. What this world honors is detestable in the sight of God.” Luke 16:14-15
Well now - this is straightforward: the world around you today (stop and look around for a second ... I’ll wait... ) the world around you is all about the slick appearance. At the core its “money money money!” We chase it b/c we think that stuff it’ll buy makes us complete or better or more significant.
Only your relationship with God will do that. Accept no substitutes! Don’t hedge your bets and try to play both sides! Others might not notice but God sees your heart - and you’ll look … well… Let’s just say it: Trying to look godly while inwardly being greedy is “detestable in the sight of God” (Luke 16:15).
Lets look beautiful in His eyes today. Lets look like Jesus through and through. Get your eyes on the right prize.
A spark for you - now fan that into flame.
what is "spark"?
Its a small thing - like the flash on a spark plug that hopefully ignites something bigger to propel you forward.
