Things God Will NEVER Ask

Many of us enjoy many good things in life and we have been blessed beyond measure. The question is…what do we do with our blessings and how mindful are we to help others? I believe that someday we will all be accountable regarding the gifts, talents, and abilities that we have been given. There are some things that we can know for sure that God will ask us when we stand before God someday…but here are some things that God WILL NEVER ask…

 

God won’t ask what kind of car you drove…He’ll ask how many people you drove who didn’t have transportation.

God won’t ask the square footage of your house…He’ll ask how many people you welcomed into your home.

God won’t ask about the clothes you had in your closet…He’ll ask how many you helped to clothe.

God won’t ask what your highest salary was…He’ll ask if you compromised your character to obtain it.

God won’t ask what your job title was…He’ll ask if you performed your job to the best of your ability.

God won’t ask how many friends you had…He’ll ask how many people to whom you were a friend.

God won’t ask in what neighborhood you lived…He’ll ask how you treated your neighbors.

God won’t ask about the color of your skin…He’ll ask about the content of your character.

God won’t ask how much food you ate…He’ll ask you how much you did to feed others.

God won’t ask how famous you are…He’ll ask what you did with what was given to you.

So, take time each day to think about how you can help other people with the things that you have been blessed. It will enhance their life…and yours!

    • Theresa…thank you SO very much for your kind words and for nominating me for these awards. Unfortunately, I already received the Sunshine Award but I will definitely accept the Inner Peace Award. It means a lot to me when the stories and pictures that I post touch people. It makes my heart feel good. Thank you again and have a blessed day!

    I really like this post. Too often, as Believers, we are focusing on the same thing that the world is focusing on–worldly things; but we are in this world, but not of this world. Awesome call to action! Love it!
