The Truth Is.
Last night I had a dream. I have no idea what it was about but I will tell you I woke up and remembered one thing. In my dream I was told "I am second". I am not kidding that is what I remember about my dream. I woke up this morning and had to smile at my life and at the less than subtle reminder that the Lord had given me as I slept last night. I am second. He is first. He is the reason that I have any and all of the things that make me happy. He is the reason that I got to wake up this morning and love on my babies. He is the reason my mom and dad are still alive and my family still intact. He is first and He reminded me of that last night and truthfully I needed the reminder. All the stuff that we wanted and the things that we had to have, that is all they are, things. They mean nothing. Our salvation, our faith, our walk, that is what matters. Our treasure will be found in Heaven, not here, not on this earth.
Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me." Matthew 19:21
