Thanks for tuning in readers, and welcome to another episode of “What Requires Immediate Attention?”
Here’s how we play: you will be given two scenarios and will choose the one that requires immediate, correct action. Right choices can lead to eternal bliss, while wrong ones may provide some earthly relief, but promise little eternal happiness.
Okay. Here we go…
Our first two scenarios are (choose only one): balance the bank account or obey the gospel? DING! Time’s up! What was your answer? If you chose balancing the old bank balance, you probably will avoid overdrafts, but your action probably won’t save your soul.
Of course, what requires immediate attention is to obey the gospel. Matthew 6:33 is instructive here. Jesus said, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” All the things Jesus mentions are those things we need to live in this world. There’s always plenty of time to balance the bank account, but there may not be all the time in the world to obey the gospel, right? None of us are guaranteed existence in this world tomorrow. Best obey the gospel NOW!
All right. Hope your answer was the right one! Your soul depended on it!
