Since everything around us is going to be destroyed like this, what holy and godly lives you should live, looking forward to the day of God and hurrying it along. On that day, he will set the heavens on fire, and the elements will melt away in the flames.2 Peter 3:11-12
Living in the Eternal
Everything around us is temporary. The birds and the trees. The sunrise and the sunset. Even man is temporary. God is the only one who is eternal. One day everything will be destroyed and we will no longer live in this world.
We must live our lives in such a way that is focused on the eternal instead of the temporary and the here and now. We must keep our eyes on all things eternal, knowing that the spiritual will last forever.
A Prayer to Remember
Help me focus my eyes on you and on what is eternal rather than the things of this world. You are worth more than anything in this world. Amen.
