Revelation 17-18 B

” ‘The fancy things you loved so much are gone,’ they cry. ‘All your luxuries and splendor are gone forever, never to be yours again.’ ” 18:14

“In a single moment, all the wealth of the city is gone.” 18:17

This description of Babylon’s wealth completely evaporating is humbling just to read. As part of a country that prides itself on material possession, status and security, I often lose sight of the only thing that truly lasts. God’s love for me and my love for him!

Fancy gadgets, luxuries, expensive wine and savings account can disappear in a heart beat. Then what are you left with?

What have you truly invested in? Is it a comfortable life, fluttering with Apple products and isolating hobbies? Or is it a deep faithfulness to the Lord? Can you have both?
