The true riches of life is discovered only in God and the future He provides. When we come to this realization it can change our perspective to golden! We just have to be willing to choose the right attitude towards life (one influenced by our God)
We tend to scoff at the prophesies of others. After all, If God's going to choose someone, it should be us! What has he/she got that I don't have? And while we're wrestling with our pride, we miss the message entirely.
