Love God, Not Stuff

As I turned on the radio I heard, "Do you love God for God, or do you love God's stuff?" My thoughts went to a few minutes earlier with my friend Phillip Cosby.
When Phillip first began his battle against the pornography industry he was warned about organized crime. An acquaintance told him, "The mob could harm you physically, but mainly their lawyers want to stop you by suing you and taking your stuff."
Phillip had to decide which he loved more, God or God's stuff.
Jesus likewise challenged the rich young ruler in Luke 18:22, "You still lack one thing. Sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me."
How about you, do you love God or God's stuff?
