Earthly things


In my morning prayer time, God showed me that we should not clutch onto earthly things and be picky about the things we have. In my personal life as well, I got lost in pushing to earn more money and buying better stuff, but I’ve realized that those things are not important.  They break and better versions come out every month.  So whats the point, you work hard to buy something , just so that after a month you will not be satisfied, AGAIN… because now you’re pushing to earn more money in order to get something else you WANT.

We need to invest in the tangible things that we wont need to update or upgrade… God, Our family, friends and people who need Jesus.  These are the things that matter, and these things will give us REAL internal satisfaction, and above this, God wants us to invest in Him and His children. –> Matthew 28:19:

Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.

But back to the core of this blog, God is trying to show us to stop focusing on having the best.  We are already blessed even if others can’t see it through the things we are “blessed” with.  Yes, you may be blessed financially but you do not need to show people you are blessed by buying fancy things etc. We focus too much on earthly things.  Jesus took a donkey (which is seen as a very shy, weak animal compared to a horse) that was not even His, and rode it across town, and still, people were praising Him and shouting His glorious name.  Jesus still looked important and amazing even though he was riding on a donkey that nobody used…

Mark 11:2-3 and on if you want to read the rest… (NLT)

 “Go into that village over there,” he told them. “As soon as you enter it, you will see a young donkey tied there that no one has ever ridden. Untie it and bring it here. If anyone asks, ‘What are you doing?’ just say, ‘The Lord needs it and will return it soon.’”
