The Future: Trust God or Trust in the American Dream?

I LOVE ME: Prosperity Gospel and self-esteem is all about ME, ME, ME!

It is better to trust in the LORD than to put confidence in man.”
–Psalm 118:8

One can either place one’s trust for the future in God or the American Dream.

This Is What $15 An Hour Looks Like –In the battle between inflation and the minimum wage, inflation will ALWAYS win.

In the USA, the past, the present and the future is largely based around how much $$$ one has.

This is another story of how hope invested in $$$ is a false hope.

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
–Matthew 6:19-21

The reader may protest: “Hey, a person’s got to live!”

And that’s perfectly true.

However, those who trust to other men, the schemes of men, minimum wage laws and the like will be sorely disappointed when they have a hard time making ends meet.

They also will continually wonder why that is. But the great majority will never change the object of their hope.

When one relies on government, one can NEVER complain at the crumbs which the government hands out.

IS the reader trusting in the American Dream for a secure future?

THERE is still time to change direction (repent) and place one’s trust in Almighty God and His Son, Jesus Christ.

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost:”
2 Corinthians 4:3
