From a young age, I grew up in a low-income family that favored boys over girls. All the good things were saved for my younger brothers, but that didn’t make me dislike them. I knew that as their older sister, I was responsible for protecting them, so money was very important to me. Money also became my life goal.
As time went on, I became more and more exhausted. I worked during the day and went to school at night, and my health suffered. But then, in elementary school, I met God. It was just a surface-level understanding initially, but I continued working hard to earn money.
In 1982, however, I had a life-changing moment. I met up with a former elementary school classmate, a Christian. She said she was going to church to do some things and asked if I wanted to come with her. Of course, I said yes, and that decision changed my life. It brought me back to the God who loved me, and one Bible verse, in particular, changed my life’s pursuit. That is
“What good will it be for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul? Or what can anyone give in exchange for their soul?“ (Matthew 16:26)
Money can solve some problems in life, but it can’t buy happiness, spiritual satisfaction, or true love. Since coming to truly know the God who created the heavens and the earth and loved me enough to sacrifice His life for me on the cross through Jesus Christ, I have experienced happiness, freedom, love, and peace I never knew before. You’re welcome to join us if you also want to know this God of love, wisdom, abundance, and power. You’re welcome to join us. Every Christian is willing to share with you the changes in our lives since knowing Christ. We look forward to meeting you.
