God Wants Us To Be Rich!

Legacy of Life

Are you wealthy?

Did you know ...God wants us to be Rich!


I love the Gospel this Sunday!  Can you imagine…

Someone actually asks Jesus to tell his brother to “share the

family inheritance.”


I love it because just shows us that things haven’t changed…

Families are still fighting over money! UGH:)

Jesus tells the man that He is not going to get involved!

Jesus says... that is not the kind of judge He is!

Jesus then uses this occasion to teach us about God’s plan for our

priorities and understanding of wealth!


The big question for all of us this weekend…

What does YOUR life consist of?

Jesus says,  Take care to guard against all greed, for though one may be

rich, one’s life does not consist of possessions.”


Jesus is concerned that our focus in Life quite often is on collecting

possessions and that to us, “being rich” means we’ve

acquired these possessions successfully.

And that we work hard at achieving wealth… Only to find that God wanted

us to be rich in another way...and find treasure in HIM!


Rich in Love, Mercy, Kindness, Peace, Joy Patience…

Rich in the fruits and gifts of His Holy Spirit!


This Gospel passage reminds me of the women who come to the Center

seeking an abortion.

It’s understandable that in an unplanned pregnancy,

there is fear of not being able to provide for a baby.

I remember a girl named Karen who had no job, no car,

and no college education.


She said, “I can’t afford a baby right now”!

That made sense.  


She decided to change her focus and not to focus on what she

didn’t have, but instead she gave up her own desires and gave herself

totally for her baby girl, Melody!


She says now that having her baby girl is what gave her

the motivation to provide. She received miraculous help

and inspiration from the Women’s Center, but it was the love

she received from God through her little baby that moved her

to want to get a job, a car, and provide for her family.


She now says she is rich in love and joy

and the other things she is achieving because she

has happiness inside her heart from having her baby!


This is what matters to God - be rich in LOVE!

Life matters to God! God wants us to Be Rich!


Share some of your wealth in God today

with someone who needs your love!


God bless,


Marie Joseph

Abortion is not a choice. Our centers exist to show mothers with unplanned pregnancies that there is a way. There is hope. There is a choice for love.


When a woman is faced with an unplanned pregnancy, she is in crisis. She is alone. She does not think abortion is her right - she thinks abortion is her only choice. We are here to break the cycle, to give her the freedom to make a free choice for life and to help her be the mother she was created to be

No One To Turn To
