Future or fortune

Wednesday August 15th, Hebrews 11: 13 All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance. And they admitted that they were aliens and strangers on earth. 14 People who say such things show that they are looking for a country of their own. 15 If they had been thinking of the country they had left, they would have had opportunity to return. 16 Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them. We still have our separate nations, tribes, religions and languages. Heavens we even, through the marketing expertise of the media, have red and blue states. God’s vision is one of relationships, people getting to know one another, all brothers and sisters in Christ. Scripture points us toward it, we run from it and start wars. There is more money to be made in war, there is more of a future in seeing others as brothers and sisters in Christ.
