ALL MY EGGS IN GOD’S BASKET!
They said you should never put all your eggs in one basket . . . but I went and ahead and put them anyway, because that ‘basket’ to me was the Lord Jesus! Have I been the better for doing such a thing? No, not as far as THIS world is concerned! In fact as far as THIS world goes, I am an utter failure!
But hey, THIS world isn’t everything! There IS a world to come! And in that world I shall be glad that I obeyed the Lord Jesus and put all my eggs in His basket! And all the glory shall be to GOD ALONE!
As Jim Elliot said long ago – “He is no fool who gives what he cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose!”
And as Luther said – “I have held many things in my hands, and I have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God’s hands, that I still possess!”
“THEN shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear”! [Matt 13:43]
