give and take

It occurred to me the other day that there is a very important distinction in the "life view" of those without Christ and those who have come to trust Him. 


In the world, folks start with the presumption that they don't have enough (possessions, self-worth, accomplishment, control) and spend most of their energy trying to accumulate more.


in Christ we start with the understanding that we have everything that matters and we can spend the rest of our lives giving it away. 


We have come to see that, as children of the eternal King, we have unending life, our true needs are met, our purpose is His purpose and all control is His.  All that is truly worth accomplishing has been done and it is ours to share that with the world.


Just a thought for this sunny Saturday.


Exodus 9:16 But indeed for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth.
