Everybody wants to have what they called their "own". Own estate,vehicle,title,image,partners,and insurance in this world.Those are good things and every good thing comes from the Lord.There is nothing wrong on pursuing those. Only one life till soon be pass and so every minute counts. We should leave a mark.
But then,what kind of mark really leaves a mark? Something that cannot be taken away from you, can't be rotten nor rust?
Even Miss Universe title will find another beauty after two years,economic status of a certain country can't be a guarantee (it boost and decline). Beauty and charm fades away as we grow old. There are opponents of every side and so good name will never be clean slate forever. People come and go in our lives,they are with you today and tomorrow will not be for we don't know what tomorrow holds. We don't know the number of days of staying in this world. There are lots of uncertainties!
We always measure life by arithmetic (by how many or less). Even nouns have what they called counted. Why? Simply because it is easy to count concretes than of abstracts.
Intangible things cannot be counted such as love,joy,peace,forbearance,kindness,goodness,faithfulness,gentleness and self control. They are the nouns that The Immeasurable and Infinite One counted the most. Showing these to others has an immeasurable blessings of eternal value that cannot be rotten out.
"Those cannot be counted, counted the most."
May we show this to every one we will meet along the way by the grace of God.
