In today’s world people think that they can accomplish anything if they have enough. If you work hard and make lot’s of money your life will be easy or at least easier. Some even think that they can avoid depression or sickness….I think of big Hollywood stars, when they make it big in the business and they have all they need plus more, all of a sudden so many of them become the “voice” of humanity, how to live, what to believe, what not to believe, how to vote, what is right and what is wrong.
This takes place in all of our lives to some degree we all think we are experts in some area of life. In some respects this is a good thing, people need to have role models in life. Right?
I LOVE talking with people about how they ended up in the career they are in or how they started the business they own, it’s inspiring to me. MOST I have found kind of stumble into where they are. We all need to have vision, we need to have goals, we need to have a plan and know how to execute that plan and vision. But in everything we do we have to have a center, a place in our lives that keeps us grounded, keeps us knowing what is important and what is not. I have found that if we learn to think bigger than ourselves and we see and understand the “big picture” in life we will go into success with a firm foundation that won’t allow us to be moved to the left or the right.
Jesus spoke these words in Matthew 4:4
“It takes more than bread to stay alive. It takes a steady stream of words from God’s mouth.”
We do not have life and life abundantly by what we can purchase, we may be able to buy the world but that will not give us life. God’s Word will give you life and life more abundantly. (full life)
I want to encourage you: if you are starting your business, career, schooling, or what ever it is, stay focused, know the source of your life. IF you do make it and become rich enough to help others and life a nice comfortable life…..remember it’s not your riches that give you true life, it’s God’s very Word. This one simple, small little verse could change your world.
