In this investigation of Matthew 6:19-24 we face a hard truth most of us rather wouldn't admit! Not only can you not take it with you, thinking you can is bad for you. The Christian hope has and never will be "of the world" but it is a hope secure BEYOND this life.

More
Israel sins in asking Samuel to appoint a king over them, which Samuel only does reluctantly.

God may have other or better plans for our lives; we won't know if we don't ask or listen.
