THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
(Comic strip by Gary Larson)
We must look BEYOND our present
circumstances to see the END result before we
can act appropriately.
2 Cor 4:18
While we look not at the things which are seen,
but at the things which are not seen:
for the things which are seen are temporal;
but the things which are not seen are eternal.
LIGHT from the WORD.
Christian friend, here's a question to ponder.
Do you sometimes become so focused on present gloom
that you fail to see the future glee?
Doing this can cause us to make bad decisions.
(See the comic strip above.)
Yes. We must focus on present problems, because we
must find a way to deal with them appropriately.
However, we should keep our future joy in view!
Take a look BEYOND!
Beyond where you are, Christ IS!
Today we face many heartaches:
storms, wars, cancer, burnouts, financial crises, etc.
But tomorrow, we'll be with Christ forever!
Let the "substance" of your faith give
"evidence" of your hope in Christ!
Don't ONLY look at the "temporal"!
Look BEYOND to the "eternal"!
