WORDLY LIFESTYLE
 
Sometimes life is so unfair; it does not give you the exact happiness you are longing for no matter what kind of sacrifices you do. When you do well, you are mis-judged to be boastful. When you do bad, people want you to change. No one really appreciates one who does good. If ever appreciated, it is only for a short period of time, especially for good behavior. People criticize people and look for faults instead of providing support to other people.

At times, the person you considered your friend, is the person who say ill things behind your back. That person places a “red mark” on you unknowingly.

Elders say……”what you reap is what you sow”. But in reality, that’s not what happens every time! There are good people who are abused, abandoned or not treated well.

For some who are loyal and trustworthy, the family and friends around him are of his opposite. Hence, that same person starts to act the same way they do to get accepted and to have a sense of belongingness.

Why is this so? I wonder.!!!! Is it an excuse for selfish crummy aspiration?

Whatever is the reason, the same ends up in egotistic indulgence. Nobody stands up to what is right! We often think of temporary events and see life as ending when we die.

As I scrutinized my books at home my attention was caught by a dusty, web covered book I call “Book of all Books”. Said book has been taken for granted for quite a long time.

Curiously, I scanned each page and observed a tiny bookmark inserted on a page, that carried these statements…...

“Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world (I John 2:15).

Halfway through the pages I read, “Lay not up for yourself treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also” (Matt.6:19-21).

“But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all these things shall be added unto you” (Mat.6:33).

Put first things first. Your life here will last at best a few years, but the life hereafter will last for eternity. If you have settled your eternal destiny by trusting the Lord Jesus, surely you can trust Him for material things.

What is your greatest desire for today? Is it to please God and lay up riches for eternity? Or is it merely to ‘get along’ in this world?
