The Secret Of The Cup

10 Jan

The Secret 0f The Cup…

There was an old Quaker who advertised that he would give away 40 acres of good farm land to anyone who was perfectly satisfied with what he had.

One day a man seeking the land came up to the Quaker and said, “I would like to have the land.” The Quaker asked him, “Art thou perfectly satisfied with what thou hast?” “Yes,” answered the man, “I am perfectly satisfied.” “Then,” said the Quaker, “why on earth dost thou want this land?”

So the old Quaker never parted with his land, because the only ones perfectly satisfied with what they had weren’t interested in getting it, and those who were, were not perfectly satisfied.

So Jesus told us, “If you will lose your life, for My sake, you will find it.” And He told the rich young ruler, “If you wish to be complete, go sell your possessions and give the money to the poor.”

It’s a paradox, but it’s true. If you want to be full, empty yourself. And if you want to be content, then let go of your want. For having nothing but God, is to have everything, an abundant life, and perfect satisfaction.

For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. Luke 9:24

Think about those things that you are afraid to let go for Christ’ sake. Give it to Him, for only then will you have everything that you need.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
