Use Other’s Greed As Motivation

When I was a little boy, not too long ago, life was a lot different than it is now.

My father made a lot of money as a second-generation factory worker making parts for a large automobile company.

However, around 2008, the factory shut down, and my family has been struggling ever since. A similar story of many in America, and around the world.

My father made $7 an hour or so when he first started at this factory in the seventies, which counted for inflation is double what I make at my job, and I am older than he was when he started this job at the factory.

It’s a shame that greed in this country has led many younger people like myself wondering with very high college prices, and with most of these manufacturing jobs gone, what is there left?

But I think that if I would have had it easy like my father did, coming out of high school too and making big money, I wouldn’t have ever gotten saved, because my life would have been easy. I wouldn’t have even thought of Jesus.

But because of my mistakes, and my failures, and me and my parents going through what we are going through, it makes me not forget about Jesus. And it wasn’t a difficult decision to accept Him alone for my salvation to begin with, you know?

I am not as soft as I would have been. I am not afraid to admit I cry a lot, it hasn’t been easy for me. I know though that Jesus is all I have, and all my chips are on Him.

I’ve been broke, I’ve been suicidal, I’ve had people give up on me. I have made more mistakes than I could ever imagine. But somehow I am writing this today by God’s grace, and Jesus never gave up on me.

Who cares about rewards? Who cares about money or status or any of that junk?

All I want is Jesus to be my best friend, He understands my struggles and knows me better than anyone else. I need to work on that more, I know I do.

I want too that other believers could come here and be encouraged, and more importantly that people that aren’t saved could stumble upon this site and receive God’s free gift of salvation.

Please pray for me today if you read this, and thank you so much for taking your time to read this. I really appreciate it. Thank you very much 🙂
