This picture has given all of us great inspiration, and speaks to all of us about what really matters. Most parts of the world have been influenced by Western values; placing more importance on money and possessions, all of which will be destroyed. Each of us need to carefully evaluate what we consider valuable and important in our lives. That is what we will invest in.
James makes a great observation; “Listen, my beloved brothers, has not God chosen those who are poor in the world to be rich in faith and heirs of the kingdom, which he has promised to those who love him?” (James 2:5).
Where does their faith come from? Paul helps us answer that question; “So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ” (Romans 10:17). The woman in the picture lived in very simple circumstances, but she was feeding her soul and faith with the Word of God. If she had nothing else in the world except her Bible, it was more valuable than the whole world because it made her rich in faith. Those riches do not fade or pass away!
What would you list for your riches?
