A DASH OF ENTREPRENEURIAL #3 | Good News

Hello there. Welcome to Entrepreneurial Goddess and the 3rd post in my series entitled "Off On My Tangent!"

What is good news to you? Is it peace on earth, no more disasters or you just won the lottery? Sadly, the world we exist in today promotes the idea of materialism and a "me first" attitude, but think about this - what good is all our wealth and prosperity when, even after the best possible medical treatments, we STILL get sick, degenerate and eventually die?

Some people look to their country's governments to solve their problems, but said governments are run by men/women who have been unable to bring about world peace and who themselves also get sick, age and die. (Psalms 146:3*) In spite of advances in the medical, technological, economical and scientific fields, injustice is on the rise, millions are living daily in poverty, there is no miracle cure for old age and man will certainly NEVER discover the cure for death. You see, only God has the power to completely wipe out suffering, sickness, old age and death once and for all. (Revelation 21:3-5*)

I'd say now more than ever we are all in need of some good news. What if I told you that you could live FOREVER on earth, not the crime-filled earth as we know it today mind you, but a paradise earth free of injustice, treachery, murder, no more poverty or homelessness, no more sickness and no more death? (Psalms 37:11, 29; Isaiah 25:8*) You'd probably think I had lost my marbles or was just off on another one of my tangents again, but I tell you such a time is very real! This is the future Jehovah God has promised us by means of His Kingdom. This is indeed good news, but to benefit from these promises, we have to prove by our conduct that we want to be residents of said Kingdom. We'll talk more about that in upcoming articles, but for now though, I'll leave you to ponder over my original question - What is good news to you?
