E. Marsh, in his book, Pearls, Points, and Parables, included this incident:
“I asked a student what three things he most wished for. He said, ‘Give me books, health, and quiet, and I care for nothing more.’ I asked a miser, and he cried, ‘Money, money, money!’ I asked a pauper, and he faintly said, ‘Bread, bread, bread!’ I asked a drunkard, and he called loudly for strong drink. I asked the multitude around me, and they lifted up a confused cry, in which I heard the words, ‘Wealth, fame, and pleasure!’ Then I asked a poor man who bore the character of an experienced Christian. He replied that all he wished for could be met in Christ. He spoke seriously, and I asked him to explain. He said, ‘I greatly desire three things: first, that I may be found In Christ; second, that I may be like Christ; third that I may be with Christ.'”
(Col 2:10) And you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
