Luke 12:33-34 Common English Bible (CEB)
33 Sell your possessions and give to those in need. Make for yourselves wallets that don’t wear out—a treasure in heaven that never runs out. No thief comes near there, and no moth destroys. 34 Where your treasure is, there your heart will be too.
Pastor: “It’s ok to buy a BMW if you can afford it.”
Me: Ok Pastor, thanks for the pro tip. I’ll go buy that BMW now.
[Next day, at bible study:] Luke 12:33 tells me to sell that overpriced sh*t and give to those in need. Ok God, I guess you’re right.
Meanwhile in church, poor bastards are being mocked for trying hard to earn money to buy that BMW they cannot currently afford, while the rich dicks are clinging on to their precious possessions while doing everything they can to avoid the existence of Luke 12:33.
No surprise that they also love quoting Matthew 6:19, which conveniently does not mention that annoying “sell your possessions and give to those in need” part.
Because rich dicks really love to focus on the “spiritual” things to avoid talking about the way they misappropriate resources for their individualistic whims and fancies.
Matthew 6:19-21 Common English Bible (CEB)
19 “Stop collecting treasures for your own benefit on earth, where moth and rust eat them and where thieves break in and steal them. 20 Instead, collect treasures for yourselves in heaven, where moth and rust don’t eat them and where thieves don’t break in and steal them. 21 Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
