When people get settled and comfortable they tend to pay less attention to their Maker and more attention to the things He made. Even useful or needed things can take first place in time and affections that rightfully belong to the Lord. Jesus knew the danger we call Materialism, for His land had many Materialists. When He multiplied by a miracle the loaves and fishes to feed a hungry crowd, people tried by force to make Him their “King of Things” (John 6:13-15).
