So many of us want success and riches and fame, but at the end of the day, what that comes down to is our deep desire for significance.
Why do we live to impress those around us? Why do their opinions weigh so mightily on us?
In this podcast, we look at the parable of the rich fool in Luke 12. Richard asks us questions like: What would you call your true riches of life?
What will be of value to you when you are lying on your deathbed? What is wisdom to you, and how much of that do you truly possess?
C.S. Lewis said, “If you’re spiritually going in the wrong direction, or really in no direction, it’s never going to become the right direction… Progress means getting nearer to the place you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turn, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man.”
Are you headed toward the true riches of life?
