The Gospel of Luke Chapter 12 v- 20 thru 21
20 But God said to him, ‘You fool, this night your life will be demanded of you; and the things you have prepared, to whom will they belong?’ 21 Thus will it be for the one who stores up treasure for himself but is not rich in what matters to God.”
God's primary concern is not the accumulation of material possessions, but rather the Salvation of humanity through His Son Jesus Christ. What matters to God is that individuals live a life characterized by love, faith, and hope in His Redemption. Possessions are not inherently bad, but they should never become a priority over our relationship with God and our commitment to living out His teachings. Ultimately, God values the transformation of our hearts and our willingness to extend charity and love to others.
Take time to listen to God's request and discern the specific calling or purpose He has for you. This may come through prayer, meditation, reading scripture, seeking wise counsel, or simply paying attention to the signs and nudges in your life. Release any attachments or fears that may be holding you back from answering God's call. Allow yourself to surrender to His will and trust that He will guide and provide for you along the way. Seek to develop the necessary skills, knowledge, and character traits required for the task at hand. This may involve further education, training, or refining your existing abilities. Embrace a mindset of continuous learning and growth.
Surround yourself with like-minded individuals who can support, encourage, and hold you accountable in your journey. Join a faith community or connect with others who share your passion and vision. Together, you can strengthen one another and amplify your impact. Once you have discerned God's calling and prepared yourself, take steps towards fulfilling it. This may involve serving in your local community, joining a mission organization, starting a non-profit, or using your skills and talents to make a positive difference in the lives of others. Be persistent, adaptable, and open to wherever God leads you. As you serve, continue to nurture your relationship with God through prayer, meditation, worship, and regular reflection. Remember that your ability to serve effectively is rooted in your connection with the divine source of love, wisdom, and strength. Serving as requested by God may not always be easy. There will be obstacles, setbacks, and moments of doubt. Embrace these challenges as opportunities for growth, learning, and deepening your faith. Trust that God is with you every step of the way, guiding and sustaining you. Place your faith in what matters to God and Christ Himself will tell you, “You are not far from the Kingdom of God.” Amen.

**God wants more than a life whore**
God will say to you
Your life tonight fool you is Mine
Demanded over prepared things by you true
Belong to who then by the Divine
Himself treasure stored
Rich not is he
God wants more than a life whore
Life matters what God likes to be free
