Why are there troubles in your life? In short because God Loves you and He is stretching your Love-ability with those that come into your life! Growth as a Christian is not measured in rules followed but in hearts and lives Loved and touched!
When you were a child did you face trouble?
Do you face the same trouble today?
Please read 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
Vs. 17 “For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.”
Growth as a Christian is not about obeying more law! It’s about Loving more and caring more for those God puts in your path. Don’t believe me?
Ask yourself this question what is heaven. Is it a bunch of prideful people that have learned to obey a set of rules that never made anyone holy?
Or could it be that Heaven is a place where people have learned to look more toward their neighbors needs than their own?
Will we have troubles? YES we will!!
But when they come if we see the trouble as God’s gift to create a more caring, loving and understanding spirit in me then my mind is on what is unseen-NOT on what is seen.
What I see here is temporary! What I see here will be gone as soon as the lesson is taught! The wall in front of me is only there to teach me to smile at the Love lesson brought to me from God!
The lesson is NOT in the law as All the punishment for the righteous requirements were hung on a cross 2,000 years ago with Christ- “By His stripes we are healed!” But the lesson is on what is eternal and what is temporary!!!
Love last forever- Learn to Love and be Godly as God is Love!
