May your talents be used for the sake of compassion and justice.

1 John 5:5

Who indeed is the victor over the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?


The “world” (meaning the value system of materialism, power, prestige and the need to be first) leads to a dead end.

Following such a system will never satisfy the insatiable desires of the ego to build its own kingdom…not to mention the fact that all those worldly things are destined to disappear.

Jesus has a different philosophy…one of love and service…using your gifts and talents to build God’s kingdom. 

Following the world’s way leads to an endless grab for more…as well as an increase in anxiety and stress over holding onto what you’ve grabbed.

Following Jesus’ way leads to freely sharing your treasures for the common good…because you are no longer “attached” to them. His way also leads to inner peace and contentment.

There are two paths.

Which do you choose?
