You've got everything you NEED (stop insulting GOD)

Updated on November 30, 2012

You've got the air that you breathe, a roof over your head and there's food on your table, a family of your own and a place you call your home.You've got a car to drive to take you wheresoever you'd like.

You are never alone , in this world that you roam , yet you don't feel like you've got every thing you should own. My friend when you exhale and inhale think of those who live under oxygen tanks, When you moan and groan about not having a large house. Just find solace that you still have somewhere to call your home. Most people can own a house,but remember not everyone can call it a home.

When you can't eat stake chops every day and you're mad vex you couldn't .Would you please stop and think of those who don't even have a grain of rice then, you'll see that life is treating you nice.

When you think that the Kia you drive isn't good enough and you want a Cadillac like your neighbour . Did you ever stop to think that the Kia can take you from pillar to post?or did you ever think of those people that walk miles upon miles on their bare feet?

When you waste water at home and don't care because you did not supply it on your own. You need to think of some poor soul that wish they had a drop of water to quench their thirst.

Do you think that being rich is happiness?Maybe you can ask the Starrs why they drink and smoke dope, they'll tell you with life they cannot cope and some have no hope.

Cherish what you have and stop complaining and trying to insult God as though he hasn't ,provided you with the things you need. Think of others who will die for quarter of what you own.

      A really good hub about the things that matter in life - and in death, too. I especially liked the last image, it says so much. God bless you.

      Certainly our riches are in heaven. I was thinking of that today, of how God says we cannot even imagine, so it is better than anything we have ever imagined? Will it be like the Garden of Eden? Well no use trying to imagine is there, but it will be wonderful I have no doubt and to put our love into material things would indeed be very foolish.
