Understanding

Gee asked 6 years ago

Today I purchased a new car even though I have two, got some new shoes to go along with the 15 I already have, clothes to add to the two closet that are overflowing, makeup to look beautiful because a new celebrity endorsed it, and I bought all of these new things for the home that I do not have room for. Talked about my neighbors and co-workers hoping to get a response, laugh or just to spread gossip. I called brother Bob who is struggling and ask for the 50 dollars I loaned him that I did not need when he needed a hand.  Filled the cabinets with an abundance of food that I will not readily eat. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday Jesus sat on the couch and you walked past him hoping he would speak first. I went to church on Wednesday for bible study and Sunday to listen to Pastor no name to make up for the day Jesus sat on the couch waiting for me to talk to him and I am feeling great about being called a Christian. My relationship with Christ is awesome even though my life is Hell.
“The thief cometh not but for to still and to kill and to destroy; But I am come that they might have life and life more abundantly. John 10:10
Mathew 6: 9-13; Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever. Amen.
 
Discussion:
Do we really understand scripture?
What does have life and life more abundantly truly means?
Can I say everything above need is greed?
Can I say I put more value in things than people?
The Lord Prayer only apply when I do not have.
To not forgive our debtors when we are walking in abundance, does that make us greedy and prideful.
Does the greatest gift of man only apply to people we like or family members? (Love)
Does to store nullifies “Give us our daily bread” or to have in abundance.
Does your life consist of the Church, not God?
Does your life consist of Pastor No Name, not God?
In your week of work and abundance is God mentioned or do we have a facsimile of Him (church, pastor).
