One of my friend called me some years back to join him with his other friends celebrating the car he had just bought. It was one of the good looking SUV. Although it was bought as a second hand, it looked new inside and outside. The inside had some nice leather finishing. Three months later he called me again, with sadness, as the car could not move after it had just stopped on the side of the road. The car’s engine had just got broken, and the car could not move. The car had a great outward appearance but its engine was weak and could not last beyond three months.
How many times do we get attracted and fooled by some products outward appearance?
This should not be the case with you when it comes to serious matters of life. You should not be spending you time boasting about beauty and earthly riches that will soon disappear. Instead you need to continuously conduct a spiritual health check. How is your relationship with Jesus? What would be the use of becoming a great person in front of people while you do not have an active relationship with God? Life on earth is temporal, it is a preparation for the life still to come. It is not worthy it to have good life here on earth while you will have nothing in the life still to come. You need to make sure that you will have riches in the life still to come because that life is eternal. Fix your relationship with the Lord and prepare for eternal life and eternal riches.
Rev 3:18-21 Jesus Says “I counsel you to buy from me gold refined by fire, so that you may be rich, and white garments so that you may clothe yourself and the shame of your nakedness may not be seen, and salve to anoint your eyes, so that you may see. (19) Those whom I love, I reprove and discipline, so be zealous and repent. (20) Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and eat with him, and he with me. (21) The one who conquers, I will grant him to sit with me on my throne, as I also conquered and sat down with my Father on his throne.”
Fix your relationship with the Lord. From Simtandile Dlepuma. Stay blessed.
