LOOKING IN THE WRONG PLACES

Mark 8:36What good is it for you to gain the whole world, yet forfeit your soul?”

            The world tantalizes with wealth, glitz, glamour and fame. People become slaves to fashion and live paycheck to paycheck chasing that next big event or technological advancement. Their attention is kept focused on anything and everything that promises satisfaction, fun and popularity. The devil is an expert at deceit. Those trifles* dangled in front of them are nothing more than a mirage that shall disappear when you need them the most. Christ asks a very poignant** question to those following him: what good is it to gain everything and yet have nothing and what good is it to lose your very soul in the process. The time spent chasing after temporal things would have been better spent seeking eternity, for it is in the things that shall not pass away that true satisfaction is found.

            The world scoffs at Christians. ‘Look at all you are missing’, they say. ‘Only the weak minded need Jesus’, they say, ‘he’s nothing more than a crutch.’ They don’t understand. Perhaps they never will. Christians find hope and peace and true freedom in their relationship with God. It has nothing to do with religion; it is a personal relationship. So while the world chases after the unattainable, we shall continue to seek God and gain far more in the process than those in the world shall ever possess.

Philippians 4:23 “ The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ be with your spirit. Amen.”

WALK WITH THE KING TODAY AND BE A BLESSING!
