The Things In Life That Really Matter…
Beyond the daily business
and all of it’s “chatter.”
Have you thought about the
things that really matter?
Would your answer be the family, money, or fame?
Or would it be something that you can’t name?
I often hear talk of living “the American dream.”
But there’s many people that don’t have anything!
There are those who do well. Others do not.
Many live for today without a second thought.
Those things we hold as important can disappear.
We can quickly lose what we hold so dear.
The most important thing
that needs to be known.
You need to make Christ the Lord of your home!
Jesus Christ and his love is a treasure to hold!
What he gives is more valuable than the purest gold!
Christ and his word is what we need to build on!
He alone is the only one you can truly depend on!
As you “prioritize” things... Please take a moment.
Think about Christ love! And his atonement!
Think about what Christ offers to you instead.
Think about where you’ll be after you’re dead!
Jesus Christ always will be the
one for me and you!
What matters the most is Jesus. That’s true!
