Most people have certain anchors in life like: profession, marriage, vacation, children, car, home, pension… and at some point death is waiting. Many believe that if they live decently, everything will be ok. Humbly, they are happy with a half full glass. Retirement is taken care of. However, what does it look like with the “spiritual” provisions?
Jesus promised a quality of life which doesn’t just fill the glass but makes it overflow. I am thinking of a woman with MS living in a small mountain village in Italy. She prayed for 20 years for her husband and he is now following Jesus!
A thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so they may have life. I want them to have it in the fullest possible way.John 10:10
She can barely walk and is taking therapy daily. Despite her uncomfortable situation she radiates happiness. I encounter joy and warmth through her husband and children. From her life spiritual blessings are flowing to her fellow men. This is how God’s principles work. This family made their provisions beyond life. And you?
