"whosoever shall say unto this mountain" - Rich Men vs. Pious Men


Rich Men vs. Pious Men

If you don't believe in God, you will place yourself at the center of your world.

You love yourself as the most important one in this world.  So, you will try to rejoice him, that is yourself,  as much as possible.  So, you find that you need money.  And, you will think that you are allowed to make money as much as possible.

But how much are you important to yourself?  Isn't there anything or anybody more important than you?  If you cannot, you regard yourself as the supreme existence in this universe.

However, if you see things objectively, you are so powerless before your own fate.  You could not even give life to yourself.

If you believe in God, you must place God at the center of your world.  You must also admit that God is more important than you.  Then, you must think that you have to rejoice God more than yourself.  And, you must know that God is not pleased with any money you earn.

Those who don't believe in God always think how to make more money, which is so simple.  Those who believe in God always think how to please God, which is not so simple.

Accordingly, rich men become foolish eventually.  Faithful men become so wise eventually.

Te more you get rich, the more you get foolish.  The more you get pious, the more you get wise.

Mar 11:23 For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.
Mar 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.
