This kingdoms upside down

In the world we live in there is a big Emphases on Being on top, being rich, and having everything your own way. That's not the way the Lord wanted it to be. IT IS THE SERVANT WHO WHERE'S THE CROWN. What if first was last and last was first? Where would we all be then? I am going to try harder from now on to be more of a servant and less of a master. What does that mean? Well I'll tell you. It doesn't mean that you cant lead and take charge but you shouldn't be Obsessed with moeny or power. I know that sounds like a clique but I ask you to stop and think. When was the last time you said "I'm out of money and want more" or asked you parents "can I have more privileges"? Now money is fine in its own way, but it says in Matthew 19:24 And again I say to you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God.” Does this mean you should go through life broke and without money? No. Just dont dwell on money. Now I know most of you dont care about football but look at Kurt Warner. He made several million dollars last year. Just because he made so much money doesn't mean we wont see him in heaven. Now I dont mean to keep dwelling on this, I just want to make my point, and this is my blog and you are reading it to see what I think so there. Now for power. Everyone loves power, just suckup your pride and admit it. We all love being in charge but you must be a good a steward of what you control. 1st Peter 4:10 says "As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. You should always seek out advice and wisdom even when you think you know what to do. I openly admit that I dont always do this, ok I hardly ever do it but that doesn't mean its ok not to. When Solomon asked God for wisdom over money and power he receved all of the above. I'm not saying you get lots welth if you seek wisdom but you will be better for it. I want to be and I want you to be the greatest servant of all.
