“Do you hunger and thirst? Do not make the mistake of trying to satisfy your cravings with worthless things. Only God can effectively occupy your heart and status. Status based on possessions is an ugly illusion. It will be shattered in the end.
“But our status is not based on social, economic, or any other system imposed on us. It is based on who we are in Christ. Our value is based on what God has done for us. Our usefulness is based on the Spirit who dwells within us. Our significance is not defined by anything that we can’t take with us when we go. Those who trust in such things will be brokenhearted. Those of us who do not cannot be shaken.” – Chris Tiegreen
