To Have Little

Better to have little, with fear for the LORD, than to have great treasure and inner turmoil.

—Proverbs 15:16


I was walking along in the field when I suddenly noticed a very small butterfly, flitting about on the grass.

Here for just a second or two, then…

Over there.

Then over there!

Trying to track it as it darted from one place to another, I kept following it, looking at the ground.

Finally, it rested on some blades of grass and I was able to focus on it.

How beautiful were the colors that adorned its wings!

There are many fine things that can be purchased in this world.





The list is endless.

Although it is nice to have these things, they are not totally necessary.

They take up our time, as we work diligently to afford them.

So, how much do gorgeous little butterflies cost?

How much does a carefree walk in the grass cost?

How much is it worth to have your mind rest at ease when you go to sleep at night, free from inner turmoil?

These things are free.

All of them.

Little butterflies.

A walk in the grass.

A quieted mind and heart.

They are gifts from God, each one.

We may not own a lot of material items, yet if we have the love of Jesus within us, we are rich…
