    When we are faced with struggles in life it is good to know that where we find most comfort is in God. As much as I would love the devil to stay gone he is not going to . My comfort is in knowing like Lazarus he cannot take heaven from me.

    Waoo! wealth, Houses and good Name are important but we will one day leave them and go up there to our heavenly Father who have many mansions. therefore as col.3:1 urges that we that have risen with Christ should seek the things that are above.
  • Brianna for verse 10
    "You can 't take it with you " Jesus encouraged us to store up treasures in heaven, rather than the earth. As we can see we can cultivate a lot of material possessions, but in the end when we die, they go to other individuals. So, I think this scripture is helpful in encouraging us to be generous with the our resources. "share the wealth " so to speak, because when you 're gone, it 's gone.
