Do you count your earthly possessions? How many of us have more than one car, more than two tv’s, lots of clothes, plenty of food in the pantry, jewelry, appliances, cell phones, gaming systems, savings accounts? The list goes on and on. If you think about it, even if you don’t have a lot of money in the bank, you’re still “worth” a lot of possessions.
But, what is your “worth” to God?
“Indeed, the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows.” ~Luke 12:7Do you think God cares how much we have on this earth or how much we’ve accomplished? Perhaps that’s why when we die, we can’t take anything with us.
“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.” ~Psalm 139:13.Things we have while we’re alive are not as important as the love we should have for God.
“How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God!” ~ 1 John 3:1Have you ever loved someone so much, it hurts? A love so deep, you can’t describe it? That’s how much God loves us, and even more than that. It’s almost too much to fathom.
Our job while we’re here on earth is to learn as much as we can about God and embellish our relationship with Him. The more we grow in our relationship with God, the more rewards we will possess while here on earth, and God’s rewards are the greatest possession we will ever have on this earth.
Remember these fun ways to love God:
FROG: Fully Rely On God
DOG: Depend On God
PUSH: Pray Until Something Happens
