Look in the right place

Afternoon to you all

It dawned on my last week that often many of us try to find the answer to an abundant life in success at work.

I was in a little book of the Bible called Amos and in chapter 8 vs 11-12 which says this:

Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord GOD,
That I will send a famine on the land,
Not a famine of bread,
Nor a thirst for water,
But of hearing the words of the LORD.
They shall wander from sea to sea,
And from north to east;
They shall run to and fro, seeking the word of the LORD,
But shall not find it.

We see here a description of people wandering about in a vain attempt to regain the word of the Lord. Some of the people seem to realize that something is missing. They wander and even run “to and fro,” but they do not find it. Part of the reason is that they are unwilling to look in the right place.

Actually an abundant life comes from hearing and following the word of God and has nothing to do with work at all! – the Bible is very clear on this point. So let’s all start to go to the correct place to find the word of God and abundant life – the Bible.

My question to us all is… when was the last time we read it?

Have a good week

Mark

One thought on “Look in the right place

  1. Food for thought, I was never a good reader but thats my fault. I never got round to discovering whether the pie that we all eat from is of a determinate size ,or whether it increases in size. the lyrics from a song go “say that he is a looser because he has got no common sense, because he doesnt increase his worth at someone elses expense”
