You have seen it more often than myself.
Pro athletes, actors or a celebrity who were
worth millions blew it.  You know,
bankrupt, insolvent, ruined or became penniless.

They simply blew it.

Usually because they simply squandered
their resources, or made bad investments.

They threw away more money than most of 
us could ever hope to make in a life time.

BUT, you have something much more valuable that
the money they threw away.  Your very life.  The
life that God gave you.  Are you squandering it?

There was once a rich man who had really
pilled it up.

"But God said to him, 'You fool!  
This very night you will have to 
give up your life;  then who will
get all these things you have kept
for yourself?'"
"And Jesus concluded, 'This is how
it is with those who pile up riches for
themselves but are not rich in God's
sight." (Luke 12:20,21 GNT)

Another time there was a rich man who really lived it up.

"The rich man died and was buried,
and in Hades, where he was in great
pain, he looked up......" (Luke 16:22,23 GNT)

The fact that we all want to over look is,

"Everyone must die once
and after that be judged
by God." (Hebrews 9:27 GNT)

Are you just blowing your life away?
Or getting rich toward God?
