Thoughts on Today's Verse...

This often repeated theme in the New Testament is from Jesus's lips and taught again by the apostle Paul. It should be a great reminder to us that we shouldn't spend our lives working for what is only temporary. We must invest in Jesus and his Kingdom, for all other kingdoms, structures, nations, and powers will ultimately pass away and be gone forever. Only what we invest in Jesus and his Kingdom will endure!

My Prayer...

Lord God Almighty, the Alpha and the Omega, the Eternal I Am, we thank you for being what everything else in the world cannot be. Please awaken our hearts to things of eternal significance and open our eyes to see through the transitory things that are so often alluring to us. In Jesus' name, we pray and ask for this help. Amen.
