When I first became a citizen of heaven I felt perfectly content and satisfied with my life
I decided I wanted to become a rich Christian author or dream interpreter and I began to study the bible a lot
Well this was happening, a huge void entered in my life - this endless bottomless pit of loneliness that nothing and nobody could fill
I tried prayer and worship and service and goal setting and bible study and endless conversation with others and nothing worked.
Today I figured out what the problem was
Here is an image of Jesus entering the temple and driving out the money changers and the dove sellers
He screamed “How dare you turn my fathers house into a place of business?”
My problem was I was trying to turn my faith in God into a means of income.
God pays you with spiritual goods for spiritual service
If you want money you must work in the physical world
As Jesus said give to God the spiritual goods that are due to God and give to the human economic system the goods that are due to the human economic system
All these who try to sell God for money whether pastors or motivational speakers or psychotherapists will end up with voids in their spirit either in this world or in the next after death
A lot of people have asked me why I like a disabled guy who is less likely to become rich
But the joy of loving God and His creation is something no money can buy
Many have money but not compassion and end up miserable and suicidal
In the same way you would not sell your children for money
So you cannot sell God for money and still have God left over

I completely agree! Let what belongs to the world belong to the world and what belongs to God, let it belong to God.
To me, that guy in last Christmas working in a volunteer soup kitchen, that's the guy I'd want to date if I were to ever be interested in guys. Over the powerful man in a suit mainly because of warmth and humility
Thank you for the mho 😊
