I read a story of a rich father and his son who spent a day on the farm of a poor family. The father asked his son on the things he has learned. The son answered, “I saw that we have one dog, and they have four. We have pool, they have rivers. We have lamps at night, they have stars all around. We buy food, they grow theirs. We have walls to protect us, they have friends. We have encyclopedia, they have a Bible. Thanks Dad for showing how poor we are!”
We tend to forsake the treasure that is worth more than all the riches and fame the world can offer. It’s our relationship with Jesus. If He’s all you have, you have all you need! We are made rich in His presence.
2 Corinthians 8:9
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.
