PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: Mark 10:28-31
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“Will fail to receive a hundred times as much in this present age…” (Mark 10:30)
This does not make sense if we understand it in terms of worldly gain.
What we gain is a new family, as well all as a new treasure.
Jesus is not promising a changed bank balance.
We need to check our minds and hearts, not our bank accounts, to see this gain.
It requires a new way of thinking, seeing and living to appreciate this.
If we are still attached to worldly values and pleasures, we will not.
Through Jesus we are free from being possessed by people and stuff.
We are able to enjoy things without the need to control or own them.
Every person becomes family, and we see Jesus in all of them.
Every little thing becomes a treaure that we appreciate and thank God for.
And persecution or death cannot rob us of this eternal wealth,
This new perspective is one that I am still working on.
To grow an abundance mindset rooted in God, Jesus and who I am in them.
It really is true, ‘You’re richer than you think!’
Lord, help me to see and appreciate treasure in the people and life that I do have, and not get stuck on the things I don’t have or have lost.
