So is the one who lays up treasure for himself and is not rich toward God.”              (Lk 12:19-21, ESV)

Jesus is not interested in your comfort. Anyone who tells you otherwise is either lying or selling  something.

Were the Israelites comfortable in the desert those forty years? Was Peter comfortable in prison? Were the Desert Fathers and Mothers comfortable? Are the brothers and sisters comfortable in China, India, the Sudan?
