And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? Is anything worth more than your soul?
For a few days now, i have been looking at life critically. What is life?
Recently on local news, a sixty three year old man was arrested as a suspect for the murder of his girlfriend. It is alleged that his wife was abroad at that time. What a mess? In another incident, a middle aged man is alleged to have short and killed a man in what is said to be a love triangle. I want to believe that both men committed, if they did, these murders on the spur of the moment. What they call “temporary insanity”.
I doubt they planned to do that. I doubt part of their plan for life was to murder someone at some point. Can you imagine that? “messing ” up big time at that age.
I have also thought of people i know who have worked so hard in their stations over the years, majority do not have much to show for according to society’s rating of success. I also know many others who barely work, but make fortunes off of others.
What then is life? Ideal life?
I have come to the conclusion that allowing God to cause your life from childhood is what would be ideal. Unfortunately only a tiny negligible percentage of people do that. For i know when you are in His perfect will for you, He surely shields you from tons of such grave errors and many mishaps you would otherwise fall into.
Right now my husband and i are faced with a huge decision to make, which we might make paradox of society’s popular belief and only expectation. But, should we waste time, energy and finances just to please society by doing the “normal” according to the set standard, or decide dependent upon what the Lord’s will is? By going with God’s will, we may be unpopular but, the end result, ten or twenty years from now, we shall rejoice and be glad!
your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
My prayer: Give us the clarity and courage to do what is your will we pray, in the name of Jesus!
