Focus on what really matters

March 31, 2017

“Life is not measured by how much you own.” 
Lk 12:15 NLT One day a man was talking to an angel. The angel said, “What can I do for you?” The man said, “Show me the Wall Street Journal one year from today. This way, I’ll know where to invest my money and become a multimillionaire.” So the angel snapped his fingers and out came a Wall Street Journal dated one year in the future. The man flipped the pages of the newspaper, studying the listings and observing which stocks would be high and which ones would be low. But in the midst of his joy, tears began to roll down his cheeks. Why? Because when he looked over the obituary column, there was his face. God is not opposed to you acquiring and achieving things in life. But He wants you to know that this life can only offer so much, and unless you live each day in the light of eternity, you’re going to waste your time on the wrong things. It’s okay to enjoy temporal things, as long as your main focus is on eternal things. Paul said: “My life is worth nothing to me unless I use it for finishing the work assigned me by the Lord Jesus—the work of telling others the Good News about the wonderful grace of God” (Ac 20:24 NLT). In the UK if you live to be one hundred, you may receive a “Congratulations” card from Buckingham Palace, signed by the Queen of England herself. But it doesn’t compare to the “well done” you’ll receive from God for fulfilling the assignment He has given you here on earth.

Help us Father, to wear the things of the world like a loose garment.
