The Truth about your pocketbook

proverbs137Some of the richest people I have met were the most miserable, discontent people.  For all their money and stuff they were so unpleasant to be around.  They make others uncomfortable too.  I have met rich happy people too.  Most of them realized it wasn’t their pocketbook that made them rich.

And I have worked with people living below poverty who were the most generous, happy, and content people.  They also knew their pocketbook didn’t make them rich.

The truth about your pocketbook is that if God is truly at the center of your life, you are rich beyond measure.  Your treasure will never depreciate, never  be bankrupt and never be stolen.  It is an eternal wealth that Jesus died for you to have.

About Jackie S

I have been through a lot in life, but through Christ I am more than an overcomer. I am not perfect, I will never claim to be. Praise God I am forgiven though. I am rather opinionated. I see most things in black and white and believe honesty is always the best policy. This combination sometimes comes off harsh. The truth is I love people. I truly love helping others and try the believe the best about others. It is easy to find faults, but focusing on strengths is more my style, but I also shoot it straight. If it sounds harsh, know my heart is for something better for you
