The eagerness and the anxiety

We live in a world of eagerness and anxiety, in a world that runs fast. We see many cities like New York and São Paulo where you work 24 hours, where the streets are always full, where the eagerness is incredible, people who have up to three jobs to support their families and make them live a decent life. But, there is a desire that goes beyond all this: “The insatiable desire for money.” 

Jesus touched a lot on this subject, and is that we can come to feel so eager for money that we can completely deviate from what is really important: God. That is why in Matthew 6 Jesus tells us that we can not serve two masters and this is referring to money. Why is it that Christ spoke so much on this subject? He did it because most of the men feel great desire for wealth.

Christ said:

25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?

26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?

Matthew 6:25-26

There are people who spent the last Christmas trying so hard to buy the best clothes, to eat the best food, even people who could not afford those expenses. And Christ makes a comparison with the birds of the sky, which do not work, however, they are sustained. In other verses He also talks about the lilies of the fields, referring to the fact that not even Solomon dressed himself with such glory.

However, all beauty is destroyed, we work for so many things, but in 50 years we will look in the mirror and we will be completely wrinkled. The point here is that none of this should be our concern, much less the center of our lives.

We must worry about getting hold of eternal life.
