I CAME INTO THIS WORLD WITH NOTHING, AND I STILL HAVE MOST OF IT!
If we begin with nothing and end with nothing, there should be no reason for our lives to be filled with "gain-seeking anxiety, the breeder of discontent. If we just think "it is our turn to be here on earth", instead of our calling by GOD, we miss the peace and power of contentment. Through Grace, all of our needs are provided. Do we really think that more "things" will make our time here more pleasurable, or do we learn that we do not enjoy these excesses? We came with nothing, then accumulated excess and it gave no joy, so now we go with nothing. Have we learned to be content with what we have, because to have GODLINESS is the gain we keep in this life and the life hereafter? 1 Timothy 6:7, "For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out." Yes, I CAME INTO THIS WORLD WITH NOTHING, AND I STILL HAVE MOST OF IT!
Psalm 139: 23-24
GOD IS GOD!
