James 5:2-3- Your wealth has rotted, and moths have eaten your clothes. Your gold and silver are corroded. Their corrosion will testify against you and eat your flesh like fire. You have hoarded wealth in the last days.
We know that Christ is going to return to this earth to take His people home with Him. We just don’t know when, but as each day passes, we move closer to His return. Today is closer than yesterday. Still we find it important to gain popularity by wearing the newest clothes, making more money, and spending money on things that have nothing to do with going to heaven. I hear it all the time, people saying, “live in the moment”. That’s great if the moment has something to do with living for Christ. The more time we spend on fitting in this world, the less time we are spending focusing on eternity. I like having nice stuff, but my stuff can’t save me. Don’t place your value in stuff that will fade away. Pursue Christ by living like Him. No matter what stuff you have, living for Him prepares you for His return regardless of the time.
