Life and a Living
by Randy Chambers, 2015-05-28
Matthew 4:4; NIV: Jesus answered, "It is written: 'Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”
Imagine a world in which you never had to worry again about making a living. Imagine a life in which you never need be concerned about what you and your family would have to eat. Imagine it is a place where you have all your needs met, and all you had to think about was seeking the Lord, and doing His will. Now imagine the world you live in as being that very place. For indeed it truly is. But it requires faith to see it. It requires a willingness to let go of how we perceive things to be, and to accept them as God tells us they are. Jesus said we do “not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.” Imagine living a life wherein we worked harder to be filled with God’s words, than we do to have our tables filled with food, and our wallets filled with cash.
