Everything on this earth and in this life is temporary.
Why then do so many people live their entire lives as if this world is all there is?
When you die, it will not matter to you what you did in life, but it will matter to you how you did it. That is, did you do it in love, in selflessness, in sacrifice? Did you do it seeking God’s glory or the glory that comes from people? Did you live your life in kindness, in mercy, and in truth? Or did you live it for the pleasures of the moment?
Jesus Christ ended His life with no trophies to display. All He had was the clothes on His back – and they even took that away from Him at the very end. Yet He rose from the dead in the greatest possible glory…all because He knew that everything on this earth and in this life was temporary.
If this is so and you believe it, why are you working so hard to achieve things that are only temporary?
