Luke 16

Our lives are often oddly reversed. They end up centering around us instead of God. God gloriously saves us, taking our feet from the pit and placing them on a rock – granting us adoption into His family. We start off wanting to do anything for God – nothing is too great a sacrifice and we want to tell everyone of His great love. But soon we move to a place of complacency and we live a water downed version of our faith. This may be no more pronounced than in the way we honor God with our wealth in a materialistic and consumeristic day where we are told that we deserve to spend on us first – suggesting the world revolves around us and not God. Yet God has not called us to embrace our materialistic day but rather longs for the gospel to so transform our lives that we see financial stability and the purchasing of stuff from His perspective and not ours.
