Be Content

NOW GODLINESS WITH CONTENTMENT IS GREAT GAIN. FOR WE BROUGHT NOTHING INTO THIS WORLD, AND IT IS CERTAIN WE CAN CARRY NOTHING OUT. (1 TIMOTHY 6:7 *NKJV)

In this World today it is so easy to get caught up trying to make money, that it can become number one in our lives. We may even forget at times how very short our human life is compared to our Eternal life!  FOR WHAT IS YOUR LIFE?  IT IS EVEN A VAPOR THAT APPEARS FOR A LITTLE TIME AND THEN VANISHES AWAY. (JAMES 4:14)

We also may become easily distracted by those around us, who are so consumed by the love of money that they have lost sight of what is most important! If the truth be known those people often have very unhappy lives, for it is written: THE LOVE OF MONEY IS A ROOT OF ALL KINDS OF EVIL, FOR WHICH SOME HAVE STRAYED FROM THE FAITH IN THEIR GREEDINESS AND PIERCED THEMSELVES THROUGH WITH MANY SORROWS. (1 TIMOTHY 6:10)

Now that doesn’t mean we should live a life of poverty at all. For God wants His Children to prosper, after all He said: BE STRONG AND VERY COURAGEOUS, THAT YOU MAY OBSERVE TO DO ACCORDING TO ALL THE LAW WHICH MOSES MY SERVANT COMMANDED YOU; DO NOT TURN FROM IT TO THE RIGHT HAND OR TO THE LEFT, THAT YOU MAY PROSPER WHEREVER YOU MAY GO. (JOSHUA 1:7)

So when others distract you it is important to remember that as a Child of God you have an even better life ahead of you!  A life without pain, sorrow, sickness or any other adversity! One with the Angels, Arc-Angels and all the Company of Heaven. An Eternal life with God and your loved one’s who have already passed before you. So always: SET YOUR MIND ON THINGS ABOVE, NOT ON THINGS ON THE EARTH. (COLOSSIANS 3:2) For then you will find true peace and happiness when you do!

Therefore, I PRAY THAT YOU MAY PROSPER IN ALL THINGS AND BE IN HEALTH, JUST AS YOUR SOUL PROSPERS.  Amen. (3 JOHN 2)
