Jim Elliott once said, "He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain that which he cannot lose." We don’t own a home or a new car or fancy furniture. And if need be I would give up everything that we have here on earth in order to serve God and follow Christ. I know that one day in eternity it would be worth it all. I wrote this little verse during my devotion today to try and express my commitment to this principle.
No home, no car, no earthly treasure,
Could ever give to me the pleasure;
That comes from what God may give.
There is no reason to be on this earth,
Nothing can be compared to this great worth;
Than giving all for God while here I live.
