Don’t Settle for the Counterfeit
The blessing of the Lord makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it. 
Proverbs 22:10

Are you settling for a counterfeit? Coca Cola has a slogan and the tag line is “Coca Cola’s soft drinks are the real thing” emphasizing if you drink anything else, it’s a counterfeit; it’s not authentic, and you are just settling for second best when you can have the best. Are you settling for a counterfeit? 

We live in a society today where the world is doing a great job in aiding people to settle for second best when God wants to give them His best. The world systems will cause people to chase after things that will bring happiness only for a season and short time, but have no lasting effects. Proverbs 22:10 says the blessings of the Lord bring no sorrow. This doesn’t mean you won’t experience challenges, but the rewards from God are life giving and able to sustain you through anything. Glory to God! 

Many retail stores now have an alternative brand on many items, and the one thing I have learned through this is the philosophy….. “you get what you pay for”…… meaning some of the off brands are cheaper and appear to be real, but are missing something that the authentic items have, leading you to not experience the totality and effectiveness of the item. It’s the same way with God. If you are trying to tap into His blessing plan any other way outside of His way, you always settle for second best and experience disappointments. Remember, God’s blessings maketh one rich and bring no sorry. Don’t settle for the world’s systems. Blessings.
