Them’s some pretty powerful words. I was just searching the real estate listings (again) which is my way of dreaming of worldly things. I waste a lot of time looking at houses I can’t afford or would spend all my time trying to afford. But Jesus tells us that focusing on worldly “success” and getting the most out of this life is going to cost us our souls. I’m not sure what “taking up my cross” means for me, but I need to focus less on personal comfort and more on following His calling on my life even if it means being willing to suffer in some way. Continuing to read His Word and pray regularly is time better spent than house dreaming.
