A THOUGHT FROM THE WORD
“My soul thirsteth for God, for the living God: when shall I come and appear before God?”
Now Here is a truth you do not want to pass up!!! One may have everything else—riches, honor, human friends, social rank, health, home joys—but if a person does nothave God, all these things fail to make a persontruly and deeply happy. On the other hand, if we have God we are blessed, though we have nothing else. Here is a story I would like to share with you:
“A man came home from business heavyhearted. Disaster had overtaken him. Throwing himself into a chair, he said, "Everything is gone. We are beggars. There is nothing left." His little child, seeing his distress and hearing his words, climbed up on his knee, and said, "Why, papa, you have God, mamma and me left."
Yes; while such human love remained, was he not still rich? Still more, if everything else is taken, and God and His love remain, are we not rich? What is important to you: riches on earth or your faith in God?
Look to the cross, think of the cross, meditate on the cross — and then go and set your affections on the world if you can!
