Luke 12:23 Life is more than food, and the body is more than clothing.

Jesus loves to use parables to get a message across. Luke 12:16 says that He then told them a story (parable): A rich man had a fertile farm that produced fine crops. He stored up so much that he didn’t have room for all of it. He then built a larger barn, stored it all, and told himself he could take it easy, eat, drink, and be merry!He showed little interest in cultivating a connection with King Jesus or contributing to His wealth to the Kingdom of God. These choices reflected a pattern of unfortunate decisions, casting doubt on his likelihood of reaching heaven.

Declaration: In all aspects of my life, I choose to prioritize King Jesus, making wise decisions that align with His teachings. I commit my life guided by wisdom, where King Jesus holds the highest priority in all my actions and decisions. 

Hello, my Friends! Deuteronomy tells us, today, I have given you the choice between life and death, between blessing and curses.

Now, I call on Heaven and Earth to witness your choice. Of course, we have to maintain our physical health and appearance. Our physical bodies can only live, on average, about three weeks without food. Clothing is high on our list of priorities as well. These things are necessary for our existence here on earth. They should not supersede our relationship with God. God must be our first love, and where our hearts are, our money will also be. Our choices in life do make a difference.

Colossians tell us, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so continue to live in Him. Keep your roots deep in Him and have your lives built on Him. Make this choice by loving the Lord your God, obeying Him, and committing yourself firmly to Him. Wow! This is so good.
