We get caught up in the things of life and find ourselves too busy to deal with the life that the Christ called us to live. We think that we are rich because we have an abundance of funds and an abundance of things. Yet, we are poor because we do not know what is really important to the ultimate end goal. We accept the things of the world and want our lives to fit those things. That means that we become lukewarm to the Gospel. It would be better that we are cold, than lukewarm.
