Would you sell both your eyes for a million dollars... or your two legs... or your hands... or your hearing? Add up what you have, and you'll find that you wouldn't sell it for all the gold in the world.
THANKFUL THURSDAY / Our treasure is where our heart is.
I've heard it said that a faithful friend is worth more than all the gold in the world.
If I ask you this morning what is your most precious possession - I wonder what you would answer? Your Family? Finances? Physical health? Some treasure that you hold onto?
There is something much more precious than any other possession - your own soul.
In the scriptures it says that your soul is worth more than this whole wide world. All the oceans, all the mountains, all the continents, all the silver, all the gold, all the rubies, all the diamonds, all the stocks, all the bonds, all of the resources put together - all of it ... is not worth one single solitary soul!
On a grave in
: Under the sod and under the trees, Lies the body of Jonathan Pease. He is not here, it’s only the pod: Pease shelled out and went to God. Humorous but truthful! Nantucket, Massachusetts
Your soul is that part of you that is the source of all your emotions and your will: It is where your REAL heart is. Your soul is what dreams, wishes, yearns, desires, wonders It is what decides, chooses, trusts, and fears. It is what loves, hates, enjoys, rejects. Your flesh/body/skin/bones doesn’t do any of that! Your soul does all that!
In the Bible we also read that our faith is more precious than gold.
A life is worth more than all the gold in the world
Family is worth more than gold
In Proverbs we read that a good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold
Happiness is worth more than gold
Wisdom is worth more than all our money...She is even more valuable than gold
Today I'm thankful for all the things in my life that are more valuable than all the gold in the world. The dear Lord has given me everything I need and that makes me a millionaire in my heart and soul.
I hope that this Thursday will be a THANKFUL one for you too.
