Pearls of Wisdom
God’s number one goal is NOT to make you comfortable
Some Christian TV channels are great, but not all of their content lines up with Scripture. You do have to be discerning. If you tune in to the wrong show or preacher, you might be misled into thinking that God’s number one priority is to make your life comfortable, easy and problem free. Not to burst your bubble, but this is not so!
God’s primary concern is His own glory.

If it were anyone else, that would be considered self-indulgent and self-centred. For God though, it is not. He is the only One truly deserving of all praise, honour and glory.
That is not to say that God is uninterested in you, or in what is happening in your life. Far from it! He wants good things for His children, as any Father does. Yet God does not run the universe on the basis of your comfort. The choices God makes are driven by what will bring Him the most glory. And rightly so!
For us, whatever we do or do not do, let it be done for the glory of God!
Whether therefore you eat, or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 1 Corinthians 10:31 (WEB) #Bible #Glory #Jesus #ChristianityTweet
Let us all focus less on what we might want, and more on what will bring Jesus glory. We can tolerate a little discomfort in this life, with the promise eternal heaven to come!
