A Different Perspective - June 1

Real Life

by Berni Dymet 

I Tim. 6:18-19 They are to do good, to be rich in good works, generous, and ready to share, thus storing up for themselves the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they may take hold of the life that really is life.

Paul the Apostle - was a cool guy. Sure, he lived a couple of thousand years ago - but the old Paul really tells it the way it is. I was reading a letter he wrote the other day, to Timothy - his young protégé.

And in part, this is what he says - tell the rich people not to be proud and not to set their hopes on the uncertainty of their riches, but rather on God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment. Tell them to do good, to be generous, to share. That way, they'll store up the treasure of a good foundation for the future, so that they might take hold of the life that really is life. 

The more you ponder those words, the more you realize that money doesn't buy happiness. It doesn't by the sort of life that really is life - does it?

Let me ask you something - if you could have the sort of life, the sort of life that Paul talks about, the sort of life that really is life - what might that look like?
