Our culture is so busy we are quickly replacing face to face time with texting, tweeting, voice mail, email and other forms of technology. Especially at Christmas, let’s make sure we give the gift of presence, that we are with each other and carve out time for shared experiences. That's what memories are made of.
It is hard for a rich person to be godly, but not impossible. According to Agur's prayer in Proverbs 30, we should avoid traps of distraction, arrogance and worry. If we re-focus our priorities, honor God and throttle back our spending we will find peace.
