And He said to them, Guard yourselves and keep free from all covetousness (the immoderate desire for wealth, the greedy longing to have more); for a man’s life does not consist in and is not derived from possessing overflowing abundance or that which is over and above his needs. 

Luke 12:15 AMP 

Life on earth is short but eternity is long, timeless, permanent and irreversible. So, beware of covetousness, greed and inordinate ambition. Your life is not defined by the abundant of the things you possess. There’s no amount of wealth, medals, academic degrees or honours you have in this world that is comparable to the glorious Inheritance which is never fading, incorruptible and undefiled kept in heaven for you (1Peter 1:4).  

Also, your present troubles, tribulations or sufferings cannot compare with a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory ahead of you. Therefore, live for Jesus, be patient and content in every situation, serve Him with all your heart, and make your life count in preparation for eternity. May God help you to wait steadfastly on Him till He comes to recompense you. Good morning and do have a joyful day. 

Your brother,
