Saturday, July 31, 2004

For this world in its present form is passing away.
— 1 Corinthians 7:31

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

This often repeated theme in the New Testament and from the lips of Jesus should be the great reminder that we shouldn't spend our lives working for what is temporary.

My Prayer...

Lord God Almighty, the Alpha and the Omega, the Eternal I Am, thank you for being what everything else in the world cannot be. Please awaken my heart to things of eternal significance and open my eyes so I can see through the things that are transitory. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
