"Rich Towards God": People in my community.

"Whatever you fear controls you!"

Elder Marcus Herbert opened the new series "Rich Towards God", at Cornerstone Church, Uptown as he admonishes church members to not let our possessions control us and that the reason we have them is for us to help those that are in need.

      He continues that "if we can trust God with our life then why are we worrying about material things?" And he also underscores the importance of giving as that "God wants us to be more giving so that we can be channels of blessings to others."

He later shared from the book of Luke 12: 32:  “Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom.{English Standard Version (ESV)} 

Drawing the interpretation of the scripture that we must see a Shepherd, Father and Kingdom relationship in God that we serve.We must allow God to shepherd us from wolves and submit to his fatherhood relationship to provide and love us and thereby giving us the kingdom of heaven as inheritance.

We must not allow financial needs to grip our heart in a way that it controls us and sway us away from heavenly richness which is more beneficial than any other things.

"Treasures in heaven is the most important" he concludes.
