Let's focus on the right treasure

Now You Can Have Unlimited Riches

A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.
Proverbs 11:25

There are two types of riches in this world. Which will you choose? One is material riches, all the latest toys and gadgets, the best restaurants, the newest fashions. The other is the richness of the heart. Let us examine them together okay.

First is the material riches. Okay you have the latest games. Have you ever noticed that on Christmas morning after the presents have been opened, the kids play with them for a while then they just sit and gather dust? You worked so hard to buy that, for what? To sit there and gather dust while the kids whine they want the newest toy? Ever remember the Cabbage Patch Dolls? What fool paid hundreds of dollars for one? Now you could buy one for fifty cents in a yard sale. At the end of the day, aren’t you left with an empty feeling? How do you fill it? By going out and buying something else? Look at the problems that have been created all over the world with debt. You fools have become slave to big business.

Now, the second part is the riches of the heart. The only way to gain these greatest riches of all is to give of yourself to helping others and sharing with others. This can be done in the simplest, yet most rewarding ways. Why not visit seniors? They are lonely and would love some one spending a little time with them. Why not bake some cookies and take them in and give to nurses, police officers or teachers. These people have the hardest jobs out there yet are so little appreciated. Say something nice to the lady cashier at the grocery store, the bus driver or a waitress? It does not have to be something big (although there is nothing wrong with that). Try going one week saying and or doing something nice for some one every day. Keep a diary of your experiences. If you have children, get them to do it as well. See how you feel. Compare that to how you feel playing with your toys or keeping up with the latest trends.

For me the time I spent being a volunteer at a hospital for ten years are some of the most special, cherished memories I ever have.

Prayer: Oh Jehovah Jireh (The Lord our Provider), You have blessed me with so much. I long for the greatest riches in the world. Here I am my beloved. I am Yours to use as You wish. Guide me where I can best be of service to others and there fore service to You. In our loving Savior Jesus Christ’s name I pray. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

      Well written and thought provoking hub comparing material riches to riches of the heart. I love the suggestions you made for the latter.

      Voted up, useful and interesting.

      Joe - you've written some great examples of such simple things to do that mean so much to those who are on the receiving end of the effort!

      There are people in our communities, working in fields that are often emotionally draining and strenuous. To say thank you with a gift of cookies, or a card of appreciation can do wonders for lifting their spirits.

      Great hub with insightful information on how to "pay it forward."

      God bless you for the effort!
