You Can’t Handle The Wealth

There must be more Prevost coaches per square foot at Hearthside Grove than anywhere else in the country.  They just keep on rolling in.  Yesterday three more arrived at the Resort.  One hauling a huge neatly detailed trailer.  This trailer alone costs more than Newmar Dutchstar or a Tiffin Allegro Bus.  It had a kitchen in the front, tons of room to park the car and store other toys, and, once the car was out of the trailer, the elevator was lowered with two motorcycles parked on it.  Yep, I said elevator in the trailer.

It’s hard not to think, “Why couldn’t I have been born a little richer and not quite so handsome?”  But God answered that question in His best rendition of Jack Nickolson – “You Can’t Handle The Wealth”.  Yep, He knows a thing or two about each of our personalities and He knows what each of His children can handle.  “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the Kingdom of God!”  So, what would I rather have; money or Heaven?  Why Heaven, of course.  Money is temporary; Heaven is eternal.

Besides, the Lord has allowed us to live a very comfortable lifestyle and, still, we’ve not always been faithful to Him.  So what would our lives look like if we had tons of money.  Well, we’d probably have a lot at Hearthside Grove Luxury Motorcoach Resort, A Prevost motorcoach, and lots of toys all the while giving God a few leftovers here and there.  Yep, I have to agree with Him – “I Can’t Handle The Wealth”.  So in the words of Mark DeCarlo on Taste of America – “I’m satisfied”.

Thou Shalt Not Covet and May God Bless  - - - - - - - - - -
