What It’s Really Like To Have It All


What can be said about a person who only gets green lights and open doors? Deep down, you don’t really believe any singular person has it all. You realize “having it all” is a temporary illusion. So, why is it still so easy to let that person bug us?

Maybe it’s really about our desire for shalom. God made us for this wholeness, yet it’s what we sorely lack. Psalm 112 describes a true shalom-filled life as characterized by integrity, respect, generosity, honesty and kindness. They truly have it all.

How do we get this life? By paying attention to Jesus and doing what He says! The psalmist describes it this way: “Blessed are those who fear the Lord, who find great delight in his commands.” (Psalm 112:1, NIV)

Turns out “having it all” doesn’t begin with having it all. It just begins with Jesus.
