💫 The Best Things In Life 💖
🌞 An old adage says, “The best things in life are free.” There’s a lot of truth in that. Some people, however, believe that the best things in life are expensive or perhaps elusive. Recently I saw a sign that made me smile and think. It said, “The best things in life are not things.” What a great way to say it ! The value of family, friends, and faith points us to the realization that what matters most in life is all wrapped up in people and the Lord.
🙇♀️ King Solomon was well qualified to speak about material things because he “surpassed all the kings of the earth in riches and wisdom”. His advice ? — “Do not overwork to be rich; because of your own understanding, cease ! Will you set your eyes on that which is not ?” Few things are less secure than money. We work hard to earn it, yet there are many ways to lose it. Even if we manage to keep our money, the time we have to spend it continually flies. Blink, and your life is going, going, gone.
🙇♂️ 🙇♂️ What to do? God tells us : “always be zealous for the fear of the Lord. There is surely a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.” The best things in life are the eternal riches that come from God’s goodness and grace. We do not hold them in our hands, but in our hearts. Invest your life in Him; He alone will keep you forever. — Compiled
The treasures of earth are not mine,
I hold not its silver and gold;
But a treasure far greater is mine;
I have riches of value untold. – Hartzler
Our greatest riches are the riches we have in the Heavenly Father.
