I was reading today that 1 million dollars just isn't worth that much anymore. Yeah, right. Anyway, I say that as I realize that it is entirely possible that Neil and I will never accumulate a million dollars, ever. I am glad that my husband is a missionary because God never lays anybody off and he rarely fires anyone!
So, I am left with the fact that my life will only have spiritual value. How am I doing? I don't know, its hard to say. I can't go on what I think or feel, because the Bible says that the heart is deceitful. I can't go on by what others say, because frankly, how could they possibly know?
I do what I am supposed to do, and say what I am supposed to say, but that is not spirituality, only the external part of it.
It all boils down to a personal, daily relationship with God. If you have it, your life will have meaning and purpose. If you don't, then no matter how much money you have, your life will never have any value at all.
