The Never Ending Banquet

The Never Ending Banquet…

Once oil tycoon J. Paul Getty was asked, “If you retired now, would you say your holdings would be worth a billion dollars?” Getty paused to do the math in his head. “I suppose so,” he said, “but remember, a billion doesn’t go as far as it used to.” What Getty was saying was that even having a billion dollars was not quite enough.

So many people spend their lives seeking more money and worldly things, thinking that more will bring them happiness. But it’s never about what you have on the outside – it’s about your heart. If your heart is empty, no amount of riches on the outside will fill it.

However, if your heart is full of the things of God, no lack of money or anything on the outside will change that. Proverbs 15 says, that the one who has a joyous heart, has a never-ending banquet.

Do you want to be truly rich? Then set your heart on becoming rich in God. Give thanks to the Lord at all times for all the blessings and your life will become as a never-ending banquet.
Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. Matthew 6:19-20

Set your mind and heart on storing up true riches in God and rejoice in all your blessings.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
