Pedro and Karol will be baptized Friday afternoon, Lord permitting. We had our sixth study tonight in their home. Pray the Lord preserve them until that day, and that they may be humble and powerful servants in the Lord's vineyard. #news #baptisms #studies]]>

"Materialism is defined as 'tendency to consider material possessions and physical comfort as more important than spiritual values' (New Oxford American Dictionary). It is being pre-occupied with the material rather than the spiritual. It is what Paul had in mind when he spoke of walking by sight (II Cor. 5:7). Walking by sight is to walk after the things of this world. David Lipscomb wrote, 'One walks by sight who makes mammon his god; lives for getting and hoarding, or else for spending and squandering; estimates worth by wealth, and will count himself a happy man if he can die rich' (Gospel Advocate Commentary on II Corinthians and Galatians)." —Paul Wilmoth
