Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

a rainy day...

for a rainy day

Perhaps, you too, have been told
to save up for a “rainy day”.

This can be good,
as long as we don't go to extreme.

"'Watch out!
Be on your guard against all kinds of greed;
a man’s life does not consist
in the abundance of his possessions.'

And he [Christ] told them this parable:
'The ground of a certain rich man
produced a good crop. He thought to himself,
‘What shall I do?
I have no place to store my crops.’

'Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do.
I will tear down my barns
and build bigger ones,
and there I will store
all my grain and my goods.
And I’ll say to myself,
'You have plenty of good things
laid up for many years.
Take life easy;
eat, drink and be merry.''

'But God said to him,
‘You fool! This very night your life
will be demanded from you.
Then who will get
what you have prepared for yourself?’

'This is how it will be with anyone
who stores up things for himself
but is not rich toward God.'”
- Luke 12:15-21 NIV
