How much are you willing to pay?

We know that the higher the price of a product, the higher its quality. Warranty, durability, usefulness and exclusivity are also worked into the price. When the price of a product is low, we become suspicious and rethink whether it’s really worth buying. We may even take it home, but we know that sooner or later we will need to replace it.

Everything in life has its price – not only material goods but personal achievements as well. And what you are willing to pay will determine the quality of what you get.

How much would you pay for a healthy marriage? For a successful career? For health? For inner peace?

Some are willing to sacrifice the desires of the flesh, look for the right person, and follow God’s advice, while others prefer to do what they want, give themselves to the first person that comes along, and follow their hearts.

Few invest in learning, studying and working hard. Most prefer to deceive their boss, bribe and walk all over other people.

Some follow a balanced diet and exercise routine. But most people are too lazy to exercise and always give in to the pleasure of eating food that is high in calories.

Among us, we have those who faithfully follow the Word of God and those who follow the Lord their own way.

This is why there are lasting and failed marriages, successful professionals on the covers of magazines and great businessmen behind bars, healthy people and sick people, overcomers in the faith and religious people who suffer bitterly. The difference between one and the other is in the price each person is willing to pay to reach their goal.

In this world, it is easier to use lies than the truth to conquer, because lies bring an immediate result, and the truth requires much more time and energy. However, don’t forget: the difficulty in obtaining an achievement is proportional to the quality of the achievement. Quickly come, quickly go.

How much are you willing to pay: the high price of truth or the low price of lies? You are the one that decides. But then you don’t have the right to complain about what you took home.
