This body that we have is decaying. It does not matter who you are, whether you are rich or poor we all die. We live in a fallen world, this world will not get any better. Our major concern should be about our attitude toward Jesus’ word.
Think about a woman who had a baby and they had to cut her because the baby is too big and this mother never complained. Because having and seeing their babies means so much more. We should think about heaven often. No amount of money will cure what’s on the inside.
Phil 1: 21- 23
What we put in our minds is what we are going to be thinking about all the time.
Matt 25: 14- 30
What we do on earth matters. God has given us abilities, and it matters what we do with it. What we have done here on earth will be rewarded in heaven. We need to use what God has given us to help others and not just bury it under a bushel.
2Cor 5: 10
The things that we do in this body matter because one day we are going to have to give an account of how we lived our lives. When we reflect on what awaits us in heaven it helps us to remain faithful in our Christian walk.
