Upside Down

"There is one who makes himself rich, yet has nothing; And one who makes himself poor, yet has great riches." - Proverbs 13:7 NKJV In some theological circles, the Kingdom of God is referred to as being an "upside-down kingdom." A place where things are counterintuitive to our way of thinking. For example, those that are first in the kingdom, scripture says must become last. Or those that seek to be great, must be servants of all. And according to our passage today, this is also true with respect to our wealth. We would all do well to remember that in the Kingdom of God true riches are not measured in dollars or cents. This is why Jesus asks the rhetorical question, "What would it profit a man if he gains the whole world, but loses his soul?" Jesus modeled this upside-down nature when He gave Himself a ransom for all on the cross. "Although He was rich, yet for our sake, He became poor so that through His poverty we would become rich." I want to challenge you today to humble yourself, become poor according to the world's terms so that you might gain the true riches of this upside-down Kingdom of God!
