It takes up all of my time right now for me to get established in my business. What does it hurt to wait till I am better situated to be a Christian a

There is no business endeavor or career that should be allowed to cheat anyone out of heaven's blessings. Jesus said in Mark 8:36 "For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?". No earthly profit could be compared to the value of your soul. God even called a man a fool who neglected his soul's welfare by building barns, enlarging crops and feeding himself without taking time for a right relationship with God in Luke 12:19, 20 &21 "And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God." It is a greater privilege to be a child of God than to have all the treasure of this perishing earth. Matthew 6:33 states "But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you." Determine today to put Jesus first in your life.
