Hebrews 10:23. “Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25. not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.”
And why should we not be selfish creatures is the argument, right? We are, after all, the crowning achievement of creation and represent God’s glory and genius. We who think and reason and choose freely. Should we not honor ourselves? Are we not co-creators, precious to God? Yes. Yes, we are. However, we are still, in all our immeasurable importance and glory, still the created. I can be waited on, praised, idolized, deemed valuable to society at large and never be more than the created. No one ever will be but God. I repeat, we have one Creator God and we are not nor will ever be Him. Worship Him. He is the important One. Be who you were made to be. That is glorious enough.❤
Philippians 4:11. “I am not saying this because I am in need, for I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. 12. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. 13. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.”
I liked this list. Just thought someone may find some of it useful. ❤
Don’t count your runs until you pick up the bat.
Don’t count your Hershey kisses until you’re out of the sun.
Don’t count your grass until the weeds are removed.
Don’t count your chickens before they hatch.
All this is true, to be cautious and do one thing at a time in at good order. However, you can always and forever count on GOD. Never count Him out and always count on Him first for everything. He is the great provider, thr trustworthy One. He may be the only One. ❤❤❤
