What can the world offer you that lasts? Nothing!
Everything in this world will pass away. Therefore, it is hopeless to cling to material possessions or Earthly status. In life all things pass away, with The knowledge of Jesus – ALL things become new! Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17
Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon Earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in Heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. Matthew 6:19,20
In the end, none of these Earthly things will matter. However, those who Love God and do His Will shall have eternal life. Rather than invest in Earthly goods, invest in The LORD.
Where your time and money are, there your heart will be. Spend your time and money investing in doing God’s Will and you will never be separated from The Father of ALL, Amen.
Dear God, it is easy to be enticed by the things of this world. When I am tempted by Earthly goods or Earthly status, remind me that they are not eternal. The only thing that is eternal is Your Love. Help me to do your Will and to follow the path you’ve laid for me. Give me the courage to turn away from the things of this world and follow you with my whole heart. Thank You, O LORD, for the gift of eternal life. May I spend my days following you and serving you. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
