Coffer fills while soul empties. 4.10.13

And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? (Mark 8:36 NLT)

What does it profit a man if gets everything he dreams of in life but looses his heart and soul in the process? Deep down in the quiet recesses of our heart, our hidden idols and quiet treasures we esteem determine whether we experience life as a blessed man or the cursed man above. One of life’s greatest tragedies is experiencing our coffers of life fill while our soul empties, trading the simple, child-like, blessed condition of heart for one distracted by the cares of this world. Action. My sons, as you observe life, know that in every man there is an outward appearance and an internal condition of his heart, the abundant blessed life has little to do with the first and everything to do with the later. Please don’t loose your attentive hearts, where you daily experience the simple, sweet fruits of the spirit. I pray your biggest dreams come true in life, only to the extent you experience and enjoy with a true, authentic, humble heart. Far better for God to withhold circumstantially, only to richly bless and nourish our souls. It is hear the blessed man focuses, knowing outward appearance can distract from the heart…the true epicenter and source of the abundant life God offers.
