I got an email this morning from an old friend and I was intrigued by the title of the email and after reading it felt it was a good Sunday message so I had to share it with you.
God won’t ask what kind of car you drove, but will ask how many people you drove who didn’t have transportation. God won’t ask the square footage of your house, but will ask how many people you welcomed into your home. God won’t ask about the fancy clothes you had in your closet, but will ask how many of those clothes helped the needy. ( I am glad I love to donate to the Mission Thrift, Salvation Army and Goodwill.) God won’t ask about your social status, but will ask what kind of class you displayed. God won’t ask how many material possessions you had, but will ask if they dictated your life. God won’t ask what your highest salary was, but will ask if you compromised your character to obtain that salary. God won’t ask how much overtime you worked, but will ask if you worked overtime for your family and loved ones. God won’t ask how many promotions you received, but will ask how you promoted others. God won’t ask what your job title was, but will ask if you reformed your job to the best of your ability. God won’t ask what you did to help yourself, but will ask what you did to help others. God won’t ask how many friends you had, but will ask how many people to whom you were a true friend. God won’t ask what you did to protect your rights, but will ask what you did to protect the rights of others. God won’t ask in what neighborhood you lived, but will ask how you treated your neighbors. God won’t ask about the color of your skin, but will ask about the content of your character. God won’t ask how many times your deeds matched your words, but will ask how many times they didn’t. I don't know about you....but I think I have a lot of work to do. I found after reading this that I fall short in a lot of areas. How about you? How short do you fall? This is a tall list to live up to....but thinking about it...I have to remember that God sent His Son to die for me.....so...when you put it in this perspective....it does not seem quite so hard.
To Joey, With Love....WINNER!
