It seems The culture defines the key to life, to be something that greatly helps you climb the social, financial ladder to open doors of success, prosperity, comfort, peace of mind, and satisfaction.
Therefore it would seem like the goal of having the key to life is having and/or experiencing success, comfort, peace of mind, and satisfaction, but the problem is there are many flaws and errors in embracing money, power, and respect as the key to life…….. Here are a few.
This is what embracing this as the key to life leads to;
-One of the components of this key to life if loved can lead to all kinds of evil and that component is money. (Money) 1 Timothy 6:10
- Power without Christ can lead to controlling unrighteous rule even slavery, power usually corrupts a person apart from Christ. (Power) Matthew 20:20-28
- Respect apart from God can be misleading, it could lead you to believe what others say about you rather than what God says about you. (Respect) Matthew 6: 1-24
The truth is God and His Word, His Will, and His way is the Key to Life.
1 Corinthians 1; 31
And because of God you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption.
Psalm 16; 5
LORD, you alone are my inheritance, my cup of blessing. You guard all that is mine.
God is not just the key to this Life, but the Key to Eternal Life, for to know Him and His Son Christ Jesus is Eternal Life.John 17; 3
And all good things are from God. James 1; 17
Is Money, Power, & Respect really the Key to Life?
