2 The story is told of an American tourist who went to the city of Cairo, Egypt to visit a famous wise man.
3 The tourist was surprised when he saw this wise man living in a small, simple room full of books. The only pieces of furniture were a bed, a table, and a bench.
4 “Where is your furniture?” asked the tourist. The wise mansuitably asked:“And where is yours?”
5 “Mine?” Responded the tourist surprised. “I’m here only passing through”
6 “I also am just passing through.” Concluded the wise man. “Life here on earth is only temporal…yet, some live it as if they were going to stay here forever, forgetting to be happy.”
7 “The value of something is not in how long it lasts, but in the intensity with which it is experienced.”
8 God has loaned us this life and He’s the one who will collect it, and so it is that; we are only passing through.
9 Living the real thing, doesn’t consist of things at all, because things cannot truly satisfy. Only through God can we find real joy, true happiness, and the eternal fulfillment that only He can give.Ask Jesus into your heart by saying this simple prayer:“Dear Jesus, I need Your love to cleanse me from my mistakes and wrongdoings. I need your light to drive away all darkness. I need your peace to fill and satisfy my heart. I now open the door of my heart and ask You to please come into my life and give me your gift of eternal life. Amen”PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO OTHERS!
