What I Have

Kang Yeong-suk from Busan, South Korea


Whenever I compared myself with other people, I felt that I owned nothing better than they did. At such times when I felt a loss of confidence, a verse woke me up.

“I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.” Rev 3:11

God’s word, “Hold on to what you have,” made me realize that I owned precious things more than other people. Father and Mother protect us as the apple of Their eyes, and our brothers and sisters share joys and sorrows with me. The heavenly blessing has been given to me, but not to everyone though he wants it. I was ashamed of myself for having compared myself with others who owned physical possessions, forgetting the value of the eternal things. From now, I will hold on to what I have until Father comes, so that I may receive the crown of life reserved for me in the kingdom of heaven we’re returning to.
