Ponder this truth for a moment. Gold has stood the test of time since the beginning of recorded history. It has withstood everything yet remains incredibly valuable. Someday it may not and in Heaven, it will be pavement; street materiel.
Furthermore, naked and empty we came into this world and such shall we leave with no tangible possession. We humans are souls with bodies not bodies with souls.
The point of this writing, is that to be holistically successful, we must properly prioritize because our time here on earth is finite. Yet, we born-again Christians have a future lease on a much better life awaiting. That should effect how live, right?
So what’s more valuable than gold, cash, diamond, houses, etc?
- God’s word
- God’s glory
- Witnessing to the lost
- Defending the the worthy
Which of these are most essential to you?
This isn’t an exhaustive list, what might you add?
How is, or shall, this truth effecting your actions?
