On Pleasing God Above All Else

The ultimate goal of a Christian is not about becoming rich, famous, or powerful. There is nothing wrong with becoming rich, famous, or powerful, but none of these goals compare to a Christian’s primary goal of prioritizing the worship of God above all else. In the heart of a Christian, nothing is more important than pleasing God. There is an unwavering commitment to God’s will. In our daily lives, we must ensure that the ultimate goal of our pursuits is to please God. In your mind, there must be something about your days that centers on God.

‚Ä≠Luke 12:15 warns against covetousness, pointing out that one’s life should never be about material possessions. You should never draw a sense of pride or purpose from your material possessions. When you fill up your ego with stuff, it always comes up empty, a cheap feeling; all chaff and no wheat. This is the true meaning of the parable of the rich fool (Luke 12:16-21). Someone who continues to acquire and accumulate possessions for themselves while never pausing to consider their relationship with the divine. Something has broken deep within the person who insists they would rather cry inside a Lamborghini rather than laughing in a keke.

As we navigate our journey of faith, it’s essential to continuously reflect on our priorities and values. While worldly achievements and possessions may offer temporary satisfaction, they pale in comparison to the eternal joy found in a close relationship with God. The parable of the rich fool serves as a poignant reminder to guard your hearts against the allure of materialism and to focus on nurturing your spiritual connection with God. Strive to live each day with a heart centered on God, seeking His will above all else, and finding true fulfillment in His presence.
