🎶If I had a ruby for every drop of blood you shed
And if I had an emerald for every single debt
Had a piece of silver for every sin you took
And if I had a diamond for every beautiful truth in your book I’d be the richest…the richest man in the world🎶
So you want to be the RICHEST ONE?….After listening to this great tune by The Rez band, we should not be envious of the prosperity of the ungodly, their day is fast approaching. Riches and wickedness seem to go together in this world. Riches simply let you go further down the road you were already on. This reminds me of a story I once read a few years back. Chief Tamihana, of New Zealand’s Maori tribe, was known for his faith and his deep love for YeHoVaH/God’s Word. In 1850, he visited England and was presented to Queen Victoria. He was then taken to a luxurious mansion. Surprisingly, the chief didn’t seem to be amazed or overwhelmed. So his guide began pointing out how beautiful the mansion was. Tamihana listened without saying a word. Then finally he said, “Ah, my Father’s house is better than this.” The Englishman, who knew that his father’s house was a poor mud hut, was confused. But Chief Tamihana began to rave about the house of his Father in heaven. He had no envy when he walked through this English mansion because he knew who his Father was. A child of the King doesn’t have to be envious. When you know who you are, whether you’re in a mud hut or whether you’re in a mansion, you don’t envy. How could you? You’re a child of the King. You truly are the “Richest One.” So rejoice in your Father and that you’re His child. And with your eyes on Him, your mud hut will become as the greatest mansion. Amen?
