Who Wants to be a Millionaire?
May 1, 2023
Who wants to be a Millionaire or least feel like a Millionaire? I used to work with a guy that would go out of his way to greet me, and he usually made me feel like a “Million Dollars”. Out of all the people he could choose to “make their day” he chose me. Therefore, I am always looking for ways to make someone’s day. It’s not hard to be nice and complimentary to others and it could make them feel like a Millionaire.
Jesus went to Jerusalem in John 5:1 because the Passover was in progress and all Jews were required to go to the Passover. So, if all Jews had to go, there were probably more than a million people in Jerusalem. There’s that word again, million. The scripture tells us that Jesus went to a pool and found a man who was lame and couldn’t walk for a long time. This is a picture of Jesus meeting us where we are in life, seeking us out to save us and heal us. Jesus asked the man, “Do you want to be healed?” But the man provided an excuse to Jesus, “Sir I have no one to put me in the pool.” Even with an excuse Jesus heals this man and tells him later, “sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you.” So, we see there are consequences for sin but there is something neat about this. Out of all the millions Jesus picks one person and heals him. This is a beautiful picture of how much our Heavenly Father loves and adores His children. He really does love us as if we were the only person on earth.
I really believe that if you place your faith in Jesus as your Savior and trust Him as the Lord of your life it is better than being a millionaire.
Today, your birthday, would be a great day to go out of your way to make someone feel like a millionaire. God Bless you and Happy Birthday!
