We Had a Deal! (Proverbs 11:4)

“We had a deal!”
“Your money can't save you anymore than it can save me!”

From Titanic, the Movie

There are many memorable lines from the movie Titanic. Most of us can quote and reenact them like, “I’m the king of the world!”. The above quotes were the rejection of Cal Hockley’s frantic attempts to buy a seat on a lifeboat. Yes, the old adage is true, money can’t buy everything.

Riches do not profit in the day of wrath,
But righteousness delivers from death.
Proverbs 11:4

The only deal that matters in the end is one that you make with God. No position, prestigious schooling, or amount of money in your bank account will ever matter with God. Why should it? There is nothing you can offer to God that He does not already have in infinite abundance. Nothing, except one thing, your faith.

You want a deal? Trust in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Believe upon the power of His death and resurrection and you will be saved. Your money can’t save you anymore. Only Jesus Christ can!

Love and trust the Lord; seek His will in your life.
