Wealth

November 29, 2012

Most people assume that attorneys must be wealthy. Many law schools mistakenly laud wealth as the measure of achievement. Law Review is touted as the stepping stone not to public service, but Wall Street and private advancement.

We, who know Christ, follow in the footsteps of the greatest Advocate ever (1 John 2: 1). Our goal should not be to accumulate wealth in this world, but the next. Our glory is to suffer as He did.

“For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also” (Luke 12: 34).

Lord Jesus, You are our Advocate before the Father.

We seek to follow You…but only if the cost of discipleship is not too high. Only if we need not sacrifice our comfort or our pride.

Forgive our hesitation, Lord. Strengthen us for the task. Help us to remember that all we have, we have from You.

Amen
