Making The Trade

1006957853_187e28fc1a_o

One day there was a boy who has a bag of marbles. This boy was walking happily while carrying his bag of marbles when he suddenly saw a girl who was also happily walking with a bag. Out of curiosity, the boy asked what’s inside the girl’s bag. “This is a bag filled with sweet yummy candies” the girl answered.  The boy, upon hearing, thought the girl’s candies were better than his marbles and so, he proposed a trade. The girl gladly agrees. But as the boy gets out his marbles, he realizes that he can’t bear to part with some of them. Rather, dishonestly, he takes three of his best marbles and hides them in his pocket. The boy and the girl made the trade, and the girl never knows he has cheated on her. But the night while the girl lies fast asleep, the boy has no peace. He’s wide awake, pondering a question that nags at him: “I wonder if she kept her best candy, too?”

Like that little boy, many of us walk through life plagued by the question “Has God given me His best?” But the question that we must answer first is “Am I giving God my best?”

Brothers and sisters, we will never experience God’s best until we give God our all. We can never be at peace until we stop cheating and compromising in areas of our lives where we get tempted.

Let us stop fooling ourselves saying, a little sin wont hurt from time to time.
Let us live with integrity.
Let us live a guilt-free life.

Let us make a good trade.

I pray for you all
God bless!
