Uninterrupted time to rest, relax, and enjoy life sounds like a line from a retirement home brochure.
In churches, normal is lukewarm Christianity, self-centered spiritual consumerism, and shallow, me-driven faith. God has become a means to an end, a tool in our toolbox
Most of us tend to look down on people who don’t produce visible results and demonstrate their accomplishments. Why? Because we usually equate busyness with importance. This isn’t just about worldly accomplishments; it’s about spiritual worth as well.
Note: true for raising children too
Because you’re rich, you’ll have all sorts of opportunities. You can travel at will. You certainly don’t need a church family. You have season football tickets, so you have a valid reason to skip church from September until January. I know people who won’t come to church in the summer because they are at their lake house instead. If you are like many, you’re rich enough to have your kid in organized sports, and you have to take him to another state because even though he’s only nine now, you never know — he might just go pro one day.
Note: preach it!!!!!
