When i was totally “lost”, i actually appeared glamorous and glitzy to the world; but on the inside, i was sick and miserable. Now that i am “saved”, i appear plain and ordinary on the outside; but on the inside, i am bursting with joy, full of life and love.
The world judges success by material abundance. If you have a fancy hairstyle, wear fancy clothes, drive a fancy car and act pricey, the world thinks you have it made. God, on the other hand, only considers the heart. Don’t try to please the world; it might cost you everything you hold dear and you could end up empty-handed.
It is better to appear ordinary on the outside and live like a prince, than to act important and live like a pauper. You are not in the show business (thank God). This is life. You only get one shot at it. Get real. Make it count.
Seek to please God alone…and everything you need, want and desire will be added to you. Test this. Give it a try. It works.
