to Invest for Eternity
Your life is God's good gift to you. No matter how difficult your
circumstances, your life has far more potential than you have ever
realized. Your life has only begun. It is your great opportunity.
It is yours to invest or to waste. You can do more significant things
with your life than you have ever realized, and this message is written
to help you make a wise investment of it. No matter what your age,
it is never too late to start planning and investing for eternity.
You were created for life. In fact, it is impossible for you to cease
to exist. Once created, no human being can escape existence. The question
is, will it be only existence? Or, will it be life in the fullest,
most wonderful sense of that term? It is not merely a question of
heaven or hell. It is a question of all that heaven can include for
you. The Bible points to great differences in the rewards of heaven.
More than you have realized your future reward is in your own hands.
Your daily choices have eternal consequences, and God does not choose
for you. You yourself must choose wisely.
God has a wonderful plan for you. Lord Jesus came that you might
have life in its most wonderful sense, "and have it to the full" (John
10:10). No matter how good your life is, Jesus wants to make it better.
No matter how satisfying it has been thus far, Jesus wants to make
your future far more satisfying. God always has tremendous plans for
you. Let me remind you again: "I know the plans I have for you, "declares
the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give
you hope and a future." (Jer.29: 11). As surely as God is in heaven,
He has better plans for you tomorrow than you have ever realized thus
far. The question is this: will you use your today so that your tomorrow
can be the greatest possible?
Our life is surviving on two main resources. One is TIME and the
other is MONEY. Everything we do revolve around these two main resources.
And we become whatever we are based on how we use time and money-
for what purpose and what we get finally. These two are gifts. Though
time is given to all equally, money is not so. We acquire money depending
on various factors.
However, your happiness and satisfaction is based on how wisely you
budget and spend these and what you achieve ultimately. If you understand,
you are given one more year to do and live your life to the full,
then you need to take every possible step to harness these to the
maximum benefit, to you, to your fellowhuman beings as well as to
the Creator and Giver of all these gifts.
Plan your daily life in such a way that you are in the centre of
God's plans for you. As you put into use your time and money, this
year, more wisely and with understanding of their value, you will
not regret later for the wasted resources. He gives more to those
who prove faithful in using the little or whatever He has already
given. Will you make the right decision and use your life today so
God can carry out His full plans for your tomorrow?
