Man naturally looks at the tangibles,good looks, talents,good health, bank accounts, properties,educational achievements, good name, popularity. If we have most of these then we call ourselves rich.
Most people including me call ourselves Christians. Christian in simple term is a believer in Jesus Christ. Then I ask is our concept of riches match with our belief in Jesus Christ ? Jesus has no bank account, he did not go to school, he died a horrible death, he did not own properties, he was maligned, his face according to the Bible was so battered that he was unrecognizable.
Ah, but we will say He is the Creator, He owns the universe, He is Eternal, He is God. He is God's Son. We believe these by faith and we believe we are heirs. Do we really believe these ? If we do , then are we willing to believe that what Jesus have on earth are good enough for us ? Most of us probably own more than what Jesus have on this earth.
Jesus has what can be called " Hidden wealth ". Do we have it ? Are we willing to believe that just as Jesus is rich in the heavens that we too are rich ,that we are really not missing much in this world ?
