Better to have little, with fear or the Lord, than to have great treasure and inner turmoil. Proverbs 15:16
It’s All Included
A few years ago I went to my first all-inclusive resort. To be completely honest it was a jarring experience. Every time I went out on the resort for the first few days, I made sure to carry my wallet and some cash. I wanted to make sure that I had enough funding on me to do all of the things that I wished to do while I was there. What was jarring was that I never needed anything with me. Each time I would order what I wanted and wait for the bill. It would never come. So I would politely ask the waiter for the bill and inevitably I was told, “Sir, it’s all included.” No tip necessary. No payment necessary. It was all a part of the package.
Many times in life we fail to realize that like at an all-inclusive resort, some things just come with the package. When we have the fear of the Lord some things are included with that. The fear of the Lord includes peace, joy, happiness, and fulfillment. You see when we have a healthy fear of the Lord, we know his power, his providence and his provision. That is why with the fear of the Lord keeps us content no matter if we have a lot or a little.
As you go through your day today, remember that having the Lord on your side comes with a whole lot. So don’t get upset. Don’t try to repay evil for evil. Just know that as long as you have the Lord, everything else you need is already included.
