Net Worth

What is your, "Net Worth"?
Your net worth IS NOT the size of your bank account. Your net worth can be seen in the VALUE YOU ADD to the lives of people. How many lives do you impact positively and powerfully - for good in an hour; in a day; in your life time? That, my friend, is your true "net worth". Money is important. Get it, you may. But remember, money is not everything.
Our true net worth is not how much money we earn per hour... Please, ask yourself, "What do I need to do to create a great and lovely impact in the lives of people per hour? What do I need to do to add value to others? And what do I need to do to increase the number of people?"
Being very popular does not necessarily equate to having a great net worth. Some people are relatively unknown by the general public but their net worth is far above that of some so-called celebrities. In the final analysis, God makes that judgment call as to the quality and quantity of your net worth for He sees all and knows all.

"It is more blessed to give than to receive."

God never asks us to do anything that He has not already done. We can't out-give God. He is the most generous giver. One of the best-known Scripture from the Gospels, John 3:16 says that, “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, so that whoever would believe in Him would not perish but have eternal life.” Urantia Book Paper 100:7.10 The Master was always generous. He never grew weary of saying, "It is more blessed to give than to receive." We see in Scripture that the blessings God has blessed us with are not just for our own gain. We are to share with others who are in need. It was for this reason that God also commanded the people not to harvest the entire field but to leave the corners of their fields for the poor. “When you reap the harvest of your land, do not reap to the very edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest. Leave them for the poor and for the foreigner residing among you. I am the LORD your God.” (Leviticus 23:22) May you be filled to overflowing with the Spirit of the Living God. May each of us be transformed by His power, love, mercy and forgiveness, and extend the grace we have experienced to those around us. Amen Abegunde Julius Taiwo.
