We are God’s children, and everything we do should be unto him, not ourselves. We are a selfish people. We want it all for ourselves. We want to live for ourselves, do for ourselves, and want others to do and live for us as well.
That is not God’s intention for us. Everything we do, and how we live should be to God. We are to live unto God and die unto God.
You belong to God, not yourself.
Romans 14:7-8 (KJV) – for none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord’s.
