Just because it’s discounted doesn’t mean it’s a good deal…
Invest In What You Desire to Have…You Are Worth It!
Last night, I was browsing online when I noticed an ad for a few skirts at the top of the screen. The skirts were various colors but a particular pencil skirt in a bright citron yellow color caught my eye because yellow is my favorite color. When I scrolled down to view the price I noticed that it was on sale for $11, and I immediately thought “WOW! I can buy 2 or 3 of these at this price.” I scrolled down the page a bit more and noticed a few customer reviews regarding the skirt so I decided to read them. As I read them, I noticed that each customer stated that though the skirts were cute they were also very thin and could not be worn without a slip. The reviewers also commented that the colors varied significantly in person than on the website. After reading their reviews, I was convinced that though $11 was a great price it was not worth the headache. I thought to myself “now I know why the skirts are only $11…you are getting exactly what you pay for…”
Some of the best things in life will never come free or cheap!
They will require you to make an investment, take a risk, walk in faith and devote everything within you. At the outset the sacrifice will appear to be an inconvenience, and you may even question if it’s really worth it but do it anyway.
The trainer you need to help you lose weight may be expensive. The gym with the best equipment may cost a bit more. The relationship you desire may require some extra work. The position you want may require more training and education. There’s always going to be a cost associated with things of value. When you learn the cost, don’t let it scare you away. Instead remember, that God who liberally supplies all of your needs is equipping and preparing you for something greater. He has a package on the way with your name on it, and by the time you unwrap it, it will be well worth the wait, the time, and the investment.
Don’t cheat yourself by going for what’s cheap or free. Take the time to make an investment into your life and yourself…you are worth it!
