Sample Story 3
Seek First God's Kingdom
To start off the publication of this site, the Webmaster gives three stories as examples of testimonials expected from our contributors.
This is the third sample story:
Mistake and subsequent pain for not following the Word
But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
Source: Matthew 6:33 (NIV)
APPLICATIONS IN DAILY LIFE
I would like to share a counter example where I should have applied the above principle but I didn't and had my career ended in ruin and misery. Blessed with God's grace, I enjoyed early success and rose to the peak of my career. Mistaking God's grace for my own effort and capability, I gradually put God aside, slid down to the trough of my career and faced imminent dismissal. God generously gave me a second chance and blessed me with an excellent career offer in which I could have served the underprivileged (thus seeking his kingdom and his righteousness during and through work) and would have been given a handsome stable salary as well. What a dreamed position! Yet, I, the fool, turned down this offer to seek first my personal goal (of a yet-to-come, high-pay position in my original industry). Sadly, that imaginary post didn't come and I have stayed in the valley for more than a decade.
