The Best Things in Life Are Not Things

By Ron Adams


And He said to them, “Beware, and be on your guard against every form of greed; for not even when one has an abundance does his life consist of his possessions.”

Luke 12:15


Things are items to be possessed and used. All of which will be left behind when life is over. For we have brought nothing into the world, so we cannot take anything out of it either.

1 Timothy 6:7


What really is important in life? Relationships!


who share our interests, aims and woes.

Oil and perfume make the heart glad, So a man’s counsel is sweet to his friend.

Proverbs 27:9

A friend loves at all times, And a brother is born for adversity.

Proverbs 17:17



who share a common faith, calling and hope.

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!

Psalms 133:1

Be devoted to one another in brotherly love.

Romans 12:10

Finally, brethren, rejoice, be made complete, be comforted, be like-minded, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you.

2 Corinthians 13:11



who we serve in this life in order to be with Him hereafter.

Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men; knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance. It is the Lord Christ whom you serve.

Colossians 3:23-24


Remember: all relationships require maintenance on our part. Effort must be expended to sustain them: be friendly, love the brethren, serve the Lord.

Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you.

2 Peter 1:10-12
