New World Treasure and the American Dream

It is a trustworthy statement: there were those who journeyed to the New World in hope of finding gold and all sorts of treasures of material worth. But the fact remains that many--yes, perhaps even the majority--who traveled through stormy waters to an uncertain future realized that God is the source of true riches. After all, is He not the Creator of all things, the Sovereign Ruler of all things and people, and the architect of the City of Gold (Heaven)? And those who knew and embraced this truth also knew that this trange and new land offered access to such wealth in the ability to worship and serve God "in freedom and in truth."
Yet, even now, many centuries later, the American Dream is equated with social and financial prosperity. The wise, however, understand that the real American Dream ultimately only comes true through the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
