Gold Love

Where do you turn to satisfy your desires?

As a teenager I traveled to the nation’s premier collector car auction in the middle of the oil patch during its boom of the early 1980’s. The clientele reflected that newfound wealth. I attended a party to celebrate the annual auction where gold Rolexes glittered in abundance on the wrists of collectors who jammed the exposition hall that housed 550 of the world’s greatest classic cars.

In some ways, this was the beginning of my life as a workaholic, money addict, and materialist. Like a junkie who attempts to satisfy his desire with his drug of choice, my veins popped, ready for the gold needle that would infuse the obsession of money straight to my heart. Paul said, “The love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs” (1 Timothy 6:10). Surrender your drug of choice to Jesus Christ, the only One who can satisfy your desires.
