The Light Daily Devotional – We Brought Nothing
Focus: We Brought Nothing
WORD FOR TODAY
In everything you do and wherever you find yourself in life, you must never forget that you brought nothing into this world and you are taking nothing out of it!
“Now godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out. 1Timothy 6:6-7 NKJV
We need to always remind ourselves that life is a temporary assignment. We have seen men with wonderful titles, honors, medals, awards, positions and possessions of life leave the various scenes of life without prior notice. They left everything without taking any along with them. What they have becomes another’s and be at the mercy and favor of God alone as they advance into eternity.
We also, as a witness to how many of these wonderful people transit into eternity will join their league when the time comes. The funeral of those people who attend other people’s funerals will be attended by others; such is life.
Hence, you have not found anything if you have not found God. The greatest gain in whatever you seek is to find God. It is not the case that we should not strive to get the best from our endeavors but the issue is that in all our gettings we must get God as our ultimate and prioritized inheritance. Don’t forget being a living soul, having wonderful possession and occupying a position of authority is a privilege: You brought nothing and you will leave with nothing!
+ Have you found God? What is your hope as far as eternity is concerned?
Prayer: Lord! Help me to find you in all my pursuits; let me always remember that my existence is a privilege in Jesus’ name. Amen
Emphasis: Until you find God in your pursuit you have found nothing!
Have an Impressive Friday!
