So I heard Joel Osteen give a great speech.
He said that it’s not any of these things that make a person worthwhile:
But rather, it is a person’s inner self and soul that determine their value.
Each person is a son or daughter of G-d.
I agree that our personal worth is a matter of how we act as human beings in choosing right over wrong and good over evil; and it is not based on how much we have, how successful we have become, or how much we are liked.
In the end, a person must return to their maker alone to answer for their actions.
You can’t take anything with you.
Materialism and vanity all fade away and only your spiritual inner self will pass over and live on.
So how will you spend your time and attention–chasing vanity of vanities or doing good in all your words and deeds? 😉
