What would you do?

Recently, a question was asked of high school seniors.  The question went something like this, “what would you do with your life if you had a million dollars?”  This type of question is helpful for a person to search their heart and find what they really want to do in life.  As adults, maybe the question is, “what career would you choose if money was no concern?”  Again, the purpose is to examine your passions in life.  Money and financial security drive many decisions in life, so we need a hypothetical like this in order to discover our true passions.

As followers of Jesus, He has promised to meet our every need.  He has promised to take care of all our needs.  We won’t live like we have a million dollars, but we can make decisions without the pressure of money and financial security.  Jesus has promised to give us these things.  In Matthew 6:33, Jesus says, “Seek first the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”  The “these things” are basic needs for survival that He mentioned in the previous verses…things like food, clothing, shelter, etc.

So, the question for us as followers of Jesus is this…”SINCE money is no object, how do you want to spend your life?”  This frees us to fulfill God’s plan in our lives without the pressures of worldly things.  Jesus tells us to live for Him and let Him take care of the material things that are needed for daily survival!   If you are living out God’s will in your life, He will meet your every need!  What a blessing!  What a promise!  What a freedom!!

  1. I love reading your “Occasional Blog”s. I agree with this. God will provide for our every need IF we are following His Will for our lives, stepping out in faith and doing what He instructs us to do. I love how He takes care of us!!

  2. I truly understand where you are coming from. Now that I depend on God for my everything, my life is so much more full and enjoyable. I know God wants me to live within my means, pay off my debt, and serve Him in everything I do. Everyday, God shows me something new and reminds me to be thankful for the littlest things… this morning, it was for having an outlet near the bed in the bedroom I’m staying at in my folks house for a few days. Finding out that there was Raisen Bran in the cereal made me even happier because I know God put it in the pantry for me, as He knows it’s my favorite!
