What Are You Pursuing?
March 30, 2015
We as humans chase after a lot of material things to validate ourselves and remind ourselves that we are relevant, or to show that we belong to the cliche of people who really matter. Looking back at some of the most influential people on earth (money-wise), majority of them died without taking even the least of their valued possession with them.
What then is this earthly goods we strive for? That even some kill for? Vanity upon vanity? Like a wise man once said!? Why labor then to attain so much? What is the purpose of your earthly presence? Why are you here?
The Earth isn't your storage of wealth; because how can you labor so much, store up so much
, diamonds, money in different accounts, and yet cannot cross over to the heavens with any? Just a little pair of diamond earrings cannot even cross over with you? Why? The earth is for you to solely do the will of God, help the needy and poor, spread the good-news of the the gospel, finish your course, then cross over to the heavens to enjoy the real essence of your labor here on earth.
that is the case, why then aren't most people looking forward to go to heaven? Why are they so stuck on the temporary things, this temporary place, that even the wealthiest left without taking their most cherished valuables with them? Even money wasted on this temporary body isn't worth it. Michael Jackson spent so much on his body with multiple plastic surgeries, yet his body turned to dust, which tells me, the thousands of dollars or millions of dollars spent went to the ground empty.
Find your purpose on earth, do it with all diligence, complete your assignment, help the poor and needy, widows and orphans, then cross over to heaven and rest from all your labor. That should be our utmost goal.
At least in heaven, there is only one landlord, God...who happens to be your Father/Creator/Maker. As we know a father will never give you less than what He has, so you're sure of a home without mortgage or rent, surplus of food without paying for it (if we are allowed to eat in heaven), and you get to wear your finest bespoke outfits that fits your body until eternity (phew... no more worries about weight gain or loss. Lol). Also you will enjoy peace eternal, where there is no terminal or "un-terminal" diseases. Don't you want that kind of rest?
Therefore, stop pursuing the temporaries and start pursuing the Eternals.
Happy New Week!
