An affluent man in New England seemed to have everything. Yet, though he was healthy and had lots of friends, he took his own life. He left behind a note that said, “I don’t know why I’m doing this, but I have to do it. The boredom is intolerable. I have all the money I need. I have achieved success. I have attained the ‘good’ things in life. But I’m so bored and so unhappy.”
Did anyone tell this man that there is hope for those who are weary? Was he aware that Jesus Christ said, “Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden”? As far as society goes, this man had everything the world could offer. Yet, he lived a life without hope.
The Word of God is crystal clear about what a tremendous value system people can have when they receive His love. The love of God would have made a difference for this man.
We are on this earth to witness and to make disciples. We are here to seek and to save that which is lost. We are on this earth to reveal the love that sent God-in a Man-down to Calvary. And that Man, Jesus Christ, was crucified and shed His blood for the sins of mankind. We are on this earth to reveal that one soul is worth more than all the world.
