What does God treasure?

Merriam-Webster defines treasure as: “wealth (such as money, jewels, or precious metals) stored up or hoarded; wealth of any kind or in any form; a store of money in reserve; something of great worth or value; a person esteemed as rare or precious.” Treasures come in many forms and are valued based on the wants of the people doing the evaluating. God spends more time on treasures, money and every other kind of treasure than any other subject in the Bible. Why? Because He knows we humans love what we treasure, Matt 6:21, “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.” He also knows we are incapable of loving two competing ideas without it creating stress and disease, Matt 6:2

What does God say about intolerance?

Merriam-Webster defines intolerance as: “the quality or state of beingunable or unwilling to grant equal freedom of expression especially in religious matters orunwilling to grant or share social, political, or professional rights.” So being intolerant says we are unwilling to grant others equal rights.

Who can be against relieving pain? Or, maybe, it isn’t as simple as it sounds? God tells us that death is an enemy and that it will be the last enemy we will ever face, for He will destroy it, 1 Cor 15:26, “The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death.” The eternal life He promises us will be free from pain and death, Rev 21:4, “And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor cry

What does God say about making a difference?

Merriam-Webster defines making a difference as: “to cause a change; to be important in some way; to do something that is important; to do something that helps people or makes the world a better place.” This world views everything in terms of this life. God’s view is eternal and so, He would change this definition to: “to do something that helps make eternity a better place.” And, of course, He would say eternity would be better if everyone chose to be part of it, Deut 30:19, “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:” Abraham Maslow correctly identi
