All you need is Jesus

Mark 10:21
"21 And Jesus, looking at him, loved him, and said to him, “You lack one thing: go, sell all that you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow me.”

1 Chronicles 29:16
"16 O Lord our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a house for your holy name comes from your hand and is all your own."

How sad it is to lose a great opportunity because the opportunity comes clothed as a problem?

"Consider it all joy, my brothers, when you encounter various trials,
for you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
And let perseverance be perfect, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." 
(James 1: 2 - 4)

"Grant me the Spirit of Wisdom  - that I may not be attached to the perishable things of this world - but aspire only after the things - that are eternal."  (Prayer for the Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit:)

But if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God who gives to all generously and ungrudgingly, and he will be given it."  (James 1: 5)
