NOT ENOUGH MONEY
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16 KJV
I watched a Christmas program about a family who didn’t have enough money to buy Christmas gifts for one another. It wouldn’t matter how much money we have because there is not enough money to buy love, unconditional love. God has all the money in the world yet He gave us a free gift, Jesus.
People try to buy their way or work their way into Heaven. It hasn’t worked and it will never work because salvation is a free gift given to us unconditionally from the heart of God and Jesus. I believe we hurt Jesus and break His heart many times because we don’t accept the love He gives us.
We can have a lot of money and buy expensive gifts for one another but if we don’t give love, unconditional love as Jesus gives to us, we haven’t given anything that will last. Love, unconditional love, given from the heart will mean more to our loved ones than anything we can give them.
Not only should we give unconditional love, we should also give thanks and appreciation especially to our pastors. How it must hurt and break a pastor’s heart when we fight and say mean cruel words to one another. Our pastors spend a lot of time ministering to us and we should be grateful.
Heavenly Father, I pray for every pastor who is preaching the good news of our risen Saviour. Please encourage them. Thank You for the Gift You have given us, the Baby Jesus Who grew up and became our Saviour. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
