Right now in our nation, there are those who have lost their homes and all that they once owned. There are also those who are facing the possibility of losing their homes to a flood. What should be a Christian's response to these things? Should we be fearful of losing the physical things in life?
Let's seek the answers from God's word. Here's what He says:
"If ye then be risen with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God. Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth." (Colossians 3:1-2)
"Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever." (1 John 2:15-17)
What we seek is what we will find. (Matt. 7:7-8)
