During my youthful years, I took some time off to observe the world around me. And I noted pretty much the same thing that many of the greatest thinkers and philosophers of the past have already noted.
The realization dawned upon me, as it had dawned on so many others in the past: there is MORE than enough of EVERYTHING for EVERYONE in the world and universe!
Many great men have acted on this truth and have tried to change the world. Some have met with some degree of success and some have met with failure, while the success of others is questionable.
I’ll mention some names: Carl Marx, Fidel Castro and Washington.

As I mentioned in one of my articles “Let’s talk about Jesus“, men often “think” they have all the answers. Then they try to rule the world! Wars often spring from these chains of events. But in the end, the world’s problems remain pretty much unshaken!
Through my limited lens, I too imagined all the wonders I could do if only I had unlimited power, money and resources. Certainly, I reasoned that I could transform the earth into a sort of paradise – a push button world.
But I soon realized something: there is more to life than meets the eye. There is God on one hand, and there is the devil on the other. I couldn’t change the world, no matter how powerful I was. A much more powerful King would be needed for that.

What if there were a powerful king who was benevolent, merciful and cared deeply about all humans? What if this king held unlimited money, power and resources in his hands? What if this king could see into all corners of the world and be in all corners of the world at the same time? This king would be God! Mankind would no more have any problems.
The truth is, this King is already here. His name is Jesus. He not only has infinite power, money, wealth and all earthly things in His hands, He has healing and love as well. While earthly princes may offer to temporarily solve problems, Jesus offers to solve them permanently. He is not only our Savior and Provider on earth, but He is the giver of eternal life as well.
