proverbs {paraphrased}

proverbs 11:4

'...riches won't help on the day of judgement,
but right living can save you from death'

our culture is convinced that money, material possessions and upper-crust living determine your place in paradise.  but all of the wealth in this world cannot cleanse you, cannot save you, cannot clinch for you a spot in eternity.  only the blood of Jesus can do that.  the response of a redeemed and rescued heart will be one of obedience. everlasting life awaits those whose desire is to live with an eternal perspective, their hearts and minds set not on what is temporary and fleeting, but on that which lasts forever.
