One thing I am grateful for social media is it allows me to see the world. I see vacation posts, heartbreaking stories, inspiring stories, government updates, economic news, parenting tips, etc. You name it.
Though, whatever I read or see triggers different thoughts and emotions in me. I would wish I can go for a vacation also. Or, I wish I could help. Or, I get disapppointed. Or, I want to encourage too.
But when all of those thoughts and emotions pass, I would ALWAYS be reminded of God’s Word. “Set your mind on things above and not on earthly things.” I always ask the question, “Does it really matter to God?”
…if I go or not go for a vacation?
…if the whole world does not know my own little acts of kindness?
…if I live in a country with economic problems?
…if I can only inspire one or two compared to others who can inspire the world?
…if I don’t ever become a parent?
God’s answer to me, “The Lord DELIGHTS in those who fear him, who put their hope in his unfailing love.” Psalm 147:11
That’s what matters to God. How I honor Him, fear Him, love Him. The condition of my heart is really what matters to God. I should never measure the worth of my life by earthly things. And I can only do this if I have Jesus in my life, His Son whom He is well pleased.
